Balcone del Palace Hotel do Buçaco

The Buçaco Palace is a luxury hotel located in Serra do Buçaco,The Palace Hotel of Buçaco was built between 1888 and 1907 by several architects. The first architect was the Italian Luigi Manini (1848-1936), who designed a Romantic palace in Neo-Manueline style, evoking the 16th-century architectural style that characterised the peak of the Portuguese Age of Discovery. The Buçaco Palace is inspired in iconic Manueline buildings like the Jerónimos Monastery and the Belém Tower. Its inner walls are decorated with tiles (azulejos) by Jorge Colaço. These panels represent scenes taken from Portuguese literature as well as historical events like the Battle of Buçaco against Napoloen troops.
