" Pegas " Top 5 Page for this destination Palácio Nacional de Sintra - Sintra National Palace Tip by NunoF


One of the Palace's room is called Sala das Pegas (Magpies Room)... It is said that King João I had the ceilling panels painted as a rebuke to the court women for indulging in idle gossip like chattering magpies (pegas).Since we weren't allowed to take pictures inside the palace, I had to put pictures of the exterior, hope you enjoy it.
