In 1999, a fire destroyed the Chalet of the Countess of Edla, one of the most emblematic buildings in the Park of Pena. The surrounding garden also fell into ruin, like the Chalet, for nearly a decade. After thorough restoration work, it is now possible to visit this unique heritage site. A visit that shows how history led to the work and how the work made history. From architecture to civil engineering, from history to biology, all areas of knowledge played a part in the rehabilitation of this historical building and its garden, where nature imposes itself with sophistication. A visit to a unique landmark of the history of King Ferdinand II and his second wife, Elise Hensler, Countess of Edla.
