A antiga residência de Sebastião José de Carvalho e Mello é um solar típico do século XVIII, da autoria do arquitecto húngaro Carlos Mardel.
No espaço envolvente, destacam-se as estátuas, as cascatas, as quintas e o jardim, que reflectem o modo de vida das classes abastadas da época. No século XVIII, era comum a manutenção de quintas como espaços de lazer e de cultivo.
A quinta do Marquês de Pombal seguia essa máxima, com uma geometria rigorosa a dividir espaços de lazer, grandes jardins e propriedades rurais. Era nos jardins em torno do palácio que se realizavam os eventos culturais: teatro, bailado, música, etc.
Denominada “Cascata dos Poetas”, por integrar os quatro bustos dos Poetas Épicos: Tasso, Homero, Virgílio e Camões, esculpidos em mármore, por Machado de Castro. Integra ainda a figura de um "Deus-Rio", inspirado nos que existiam nos Jardins Renascentistas do Belvedere, no Vaticano em Roma.

The former residence of Sebastião José de Carvalho and Mello is a typical 18th-century manor house, created by the Hungarian architect Carlos Mardel.
The surrounding space exhibits statues, waterfalls, farms and the gardens, reflecting the style of life of the well-to-do families of the age. Estates with both leisure spaces and agricultural lands were common in the 18th century.
The estate of the Marquis of Pombal followed this principle, with a rigorous geometry to divide recreation spaces, great gardens and rural properties. It was at the gardens surrounding the palace that cultural events were held: theatre, ballet, music, etc.
It’s named "Waterfall of the Poets", because integrates the four busts of the Epic Poets: Tasso, Homero, Virgílio and Camões, carved in marble, by Machado de Castro. It integrates still the figure of a “River-God”, inspired in that existed at Renaissance Gardens of the Belvedere, in the Vatican, Rome.
