A Palace in the Forest

The Palace Hotel of Buçaco: a Romantic palace in Neo-Manueline style, evoking the 16th-century architectural style characterising the peak of the Portuguese Age of Discovery.

The area around the Palace was part of a Carmelite convent established in 1628. The monks not only built a convent but also created a luxurious garden with many species of trees to represent the Earthly Paradise. In 1810 the Napoleonic wars in the Peninsular led to a particularly bloody battle here, Wellington and his men headquartered at the convent.
In the late 1800s there were plans to turn the ancient convent into a royal residence, but difficult political circumstances led to the decision to turn the palace into a hotel, which was built between 1888 and 1907. (Wikipedia)
