Park and National Palace of Pena, Sintra

4.3
The exotic Park and National Palace of Pena, a World Heritage Site known for its Romanticist architecture, is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. While the foundation of this palace dates back to a chapel in the Middle Ages, the current appearance is mostly the work of German architect Baron Wilhelm Ludwig von Eschwege. He mixed Neo-Gothic, Neo-Manueline, Neo-Islamic, and Neo-Renaissance styles to create this dramatic structure. Tour the palace to admire the building's restored red and yellow facade, interior design, and antique furniture.

  • A hill climb through beautiful gardens was well worth the effort. The Palace was amazing and the grounds stunning. Be aware this is a very popular place so queues are to be expected.   more »

  • Where do I begin with such beautiful creation. 1. Arrive early in the morning. 2. Park in the garden at the bottom and walk up, you really get to embrace what this wonder truly represents. 3. Take pictures, take your time. Wear comfortable shoes. 4. The walk takes about 3 hours if you really want to explore the location.
  • Definitely worth going. Went in the afternoon an hour before closing time. Not to many people. Beautiful view. Its beautiful inside. Every room is intricate. We can tell that a lot of money went into decorating this home. Everything from the ceilings to the furniture are pure artistry.
