Located in the heart of town, the18th-century ‘palacete’ Quinta do Relógio has stunning views over the Moorish castle and dreamy world heritage site of Quinta da Regaleira.
Last month, bets were on Madonna buying the €18 million estate of Quinta do Vinagre —another astonishing luxury real estate located in Portugal. But apparently, Quinta do Relógio will be a lot more ‘manageable’ in terms of size and are and came with the much-reduced price tag. This palace, dating from the 18th century and has a romantic and neo-Arab style architecture.
The luxurious property has been on the market for “several years”. On the books of agents Engel & Volkers, it is described as having four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, 2.21 hectares of land and 2000 SQ. meters of ‘habitable space’.
Do not fool yourselves, because the headline here is Madonna buys palacete in Portugal, the gorgeous old building originally constructed by ‘slave trader’ Manuel da Fonseca will be undergoing a major ‘makeover’ before Madonna and her entourage start using it. The old building is also known for having been the honeymoon destination of Portuguese royals D. Carlos de Bragança and D. Maria Amélia de Orleãs in 1886.
Does this mean the Queen of Pop Madonna is moving to Portugal permanently? No one knows for sure. But what everybody knows for sure is that she was seen visiting Lisbon’s French lycée during her trip here last month, leading to speculation that she might be enrolling her two youngest adopted children, twins Esther and Stella, while elder brother David may take up a place at the Benfica football academy.
