My dear Pena is the crown of the Sintra region

King Ferdinand II, King of Portugal (1836-1885)

The view that is enjoyed from there simultaneously gives us a sensation of amazement, pleasure and fear

Carl Israel Ruders, Viagem em Portugal, 1789-1802

Built on a rock [the Palace] seems to come straight out of a fairy tale

Richard Strauss, composer

This is the true Garden of Klingsor and there, up above, is the Castle of the Holy Grail

Richard Strauss, composer

Park and National Palace of Pena

Located in the Sintra hills, the Park and Palace of Pena are the fruit of King Ferdinand II’s creative genius and the greatest expression of 19th-century romanticism in Portugal, denoting clear influences from the Manueline and Moorish styles of architecture. The palace was built in such a way as to be visible from any point in the park, which consists of a forest and luxuriant gardens with over five hundred different species of trees originating from the four corners of the earth.
