Highlights
  • Explore this picturesque royal retreat, plucked straight from a fairy tale dreamworld
  • Get lost in the 500-acre gardens, packed with exotic plant life, meandering streams, and all sorts of hidden delights
  • Marvel at the history and splendor of this UNESCO World Heritage site
Description

This picture-perfect mountain retreat was a monastery until transformed into a private palace by King Ferdinand II. The surrounding Park of Pena is just as big of a treat, full of exotic plant life and other secret treasures. Discover for yourself the 'Crown of the Sintra region'.

Originally a 16th-century monastery, Ferdinand threw out all notions of restraint and ordered its conversion into a Technicolor fairy tale fortress. The King couldn't settle on a single style, so the castle is a delightful mishmash of Romantic, Renaissance, Manueline and Moorish styles. A must-see for fans of architecture and design (and bright colors)!

Equally beautiful are the surrounding gardens. Built to take advantage of the naturally damp climate they contain over 500 species of tree from the four corners of the earth. True to form, the gardens are a sprawling grotto of hidden delights, making a perfectly serene escape from daily life.

Make sure you take the time to drink in the stunning views over the Sintra Region, western coastline, and the city of Lisbon below.

The place and the gardens around,
are awesome. Difficult to achieve up there, and if there is an easier way, it is not easy to find.

Easy to use interface. Definitely a must do to order your tickets online for Pena Park and Palace because long lines if you haven't bought online and then only to go into long line after you have bought.
