1. Palace of Queluz

The National Palace of Queluz will mesmerize you with its enchanting natural beauty. The happiness, sadness, and emotions of the three generations of the Portuguese royal family are closely related to this architecture. The surrounding scenic gardens lend you a hand in organizing excursions or lavish parties. There are canals to keep your memories alive. There are also gondolas, theater, hunting, musical and literary performances, masked balls, and games. Dreamlike scenes are also animated by waterfalls, delicate water games, and many more eye-catching things. Dinner is available in pleasant surroundings. Hence the Portugal royal palace is a unique wedding venue.

2. Palácio Marqueses da Fronteira

Fronteira Palace is the most beautiful place in Lisbon. A 17th-century monument that is well known internationally as a Portuguese icon. It was built in 1670. It is located near the Lisbon boutique hotel that will remain in your memory. The terrace filled with Azulejos makes for an incredible wedding reception on a balmy summer evening.

4. Douro Six Senses

For port wine lovers, the terraced vineyards of the Douro Valley, one of the oldest wine regions in the world, are a place of peace and relaxation. Housed in a 19th-century mansion on a pier in the valley, the Six Senses Hotel is the ultimate escape from the daily grind for the couple and their wedding guests.

Portuguese oak floors, romantic rooms with earth tones and textured walls, and a sublime evening wine tasting followed by a candlelit dinner are just a few reasons this is a worthy destination. After a quick break, head to the resort's winery, where the hotel's wine director will teach you about the 700 bottles of port and wines from the Douro region, carefully selected by the hotel's wine director. For a place to unwind without smelling the word "detox," Six Senses Douro Valley is the perfect place.

5. Sintra Charming Palace

This stunning 19th-century palace is a hidden treasure worth admiring: built-in 1880, it features neo-Gothic windows and a conical roof (it is also the most famous building). Many of you may have seen the movie "The Ninth Gate," directed by Roman Polanski and starring Johnny Depp, in which Sintra was part of the setting. But, did you know that this amazing venue can accommodate up to 350 people for a wedding reception meal? This venue is finally opening its doors for weddings and other events.

6. Pousada de Amares

The Pousada de Santa María do Burro in Amares, also known as Pousada Mosteiro de Amares, is a National Heritage Site.The Pousada is a restored 12th-century Cistercian monastery by the renowned architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, who won the Pritzker Prize, the world's most important architecture award, in 2011.

Its appearance and setting make it the perfect getaway, especially for those who love ceremonies with a view and an intimate and unique destination wedding experience. The expansive grounds provide an idyllic setting for a unique and memorable al fresco wedding reception.

7. Palácio da Bacalhôa

There are many facts about Bacalhoa Palace. It is a masterpiece. The prosperity enjoyed by the Portuguese over the years due to their fantastic adventures in uncharted waters has enabled them, as owners of half the world, to preserve Portuguese art as never before. Artists, inspired by their travels in Europe, Africa, and the Far East, or inspired by the spirit of the Maecenas family, flocked to Bacalhãoa, influencing the palace's architecture, decoration, and gardens, making it the precious and unparalleled place it is today.

This iconic Portuguese wedding venue offers a ceremony, reception, and brunch, followed by a winery tour (and by tour, we mean tasting!). With a visit to the Palace Museum, it is the perfect location for a destination wedding weekend.

8. Casa de Mateus

Full of history and charm, this Portuguese wedding venue consists of an idyllic main house, stunning gardens, a winery, and a chapel, making it the perfect place to experience one of the most enchanting and enjoyable wedding ceremonies in Northern Portugal.
