Queluz is famous for the palace built by Dom Pedro III , in the rococo style, called "little Versailles". It is the most welcoming of the royal palaces and built in the XVIII century. Its gardens (Pensil or Neptuno and Azereiros), are attributed to the architect Robillion and the Dutch gardener Joseph van der Kolk, according to the then prevailing "French taste".
Besides the palace, there are in Queluz many interesting places that will catch attention of the first time visitors, such as megalithic monuments (2500 bC) and buildings from the centuries XIV, XVII and XVIII. Around the old nucleus of the city villas and houses sprung up at the beginning of this century used as summer houses.
With the city growth from the last 40 years, Queluz has, today, distinct places with theirs own names: Massam, Casal do Olival, Monte Abra緌, Pend緌, Alto dos Moinhos, Casal dos Afonso and Bairro Conde Almeida Arajo (Chinelo) are some housing group around downtown. Today, the city has 3 parishes: Queluz, Monte Abra緌 and Massam. Much can be discovered of the history and style found in the cobbled streets of Queluz
