"visit Palácio da Pena, or..." Portugal Favorite Tip by matcrazy1

Portugal General: 321 reviews and 294 photos


Favorite thing: visit Palácio da Pena, or 'Castelo da Pena' (30 km from Lisbon) as it is more commonly known, which is the most complete and notable example of Portuguese architecture in the Romantic period. It stands on one of the rocky peaks of the Serra de Sintra, and blends in a surprisingly fortunate manner with its natural background of greenery and crags, testifying to the aesthetic potentialities of the project.
