Seteais Palace

Seteais Palace in sintra

Built in the last quarter of the 18th Century by Daniel Gildemeester, at the time Dutch Consul in Portugal, this palace (now a hotel) was given its present form after the enlargement works carried out in first years of the 19th Century when it belonged to Dom Diogo José Vito de Meneses Noronha Coutinho, 5th Marquis of Marialva. It was this aristocrat who was responsible for building the east wing and the majestic triumphal arch (1802), in honour of a visit by Dom João VI, at the time still Prince Regent, and Dona Carlota Joaquina. Seteais Palace is a dignified neo-classical building, attributable to the architect José da Costa e Silva, following the Renaissance values of neo-Palladianism. The interior, which has been altered by the various restorations, is notable for a spacious room decorated with fresco painting of the Pillement School, with mythological motifs.
