About this spot
The Palacio Nacional da Pena is one of the finest tourist attractions in Portugal and exemplifies the 19th century Romanticism style of architecture. The palace is located close to Sintra and is a hedonistic mix of vividly painted terraces, decorative battlements and mythological statues. The interior of the Pena Palace is equally as fascinating. It was restored to reflect the decor in 1910. Surrounding the palace are forested grounds with hidden pathways, mystical ornaments and stunning vistas.
