STATE BANQUET ROOM

It was here that most of the royal banquets were held, as well as some of the most significant ceremonies of the 19th century, such as the Acclamation of Miguel (1828) and the wedding of King Carlos (1886). The decoration always included a profusion of plants and silver which sparkled in the candlelight and were multiplied in the splendid grandeur of the mirrors. Even today, banquets given by the President of the Republic are served in this hall. The pieces of gold and silver work from the 17th to the 19th century, produced in the best national and European workshops, together with 18th century Chinese porcelain services, lining the sideboards, clearly display the artistic wealth of the tableware used by the Portuguese Royal Household.
