NOTES:

[1]. The Sala das Bicas Palace, located in Belém, formerly a palace of kings, is now a national monument and seat of the Portuguese Presidency. Called “da leoneiras” in the eighteenth century, it seems to have as its emblem the lion a solar symbol that combines Wisdom with Power. A green flag with the national shield – the presidential banner is hoisted in the palace indicating the presence of the President in Belém. The entrance to the palace is made by the ramp of the Pátio dos Bichos. Around here are the guests of the President of the Republic and official visits.

[2] The National Palace of Queluz and its historical gardens in Sintra are one of the most remarkable examples of the harmonious link between landscape and palatial architecture in Portugal. They illustrate the evolution of the Court’s tastes in the 18th and 19th centuries, a period that was marked by the baroque, rococo and neoclassicism. Built in 1747 at the orders of the future King Pedro III, the consort of Queen Maria I, the Palace of Queluz was initially conceived as a summer residence, becoming the royal family’s preferred place for their leisure and entertainment. They lived there permanently from 1794 until their departure for Brazil in 1807, as a result of the French invasions.
