A haven for the arts.
Elise Friederike Hensler, a fervent admirer of the arts and letters, was an opera singer who won the heart of Ferdinand II after he lost his first wife, Queen Maria II.
Hensler, who was later honoured with the title of the Countess of Edla, built together with Ferdinand an alpine style chalet in the western reaches of the Park of Pena to serve as a place of leisure and a romantic refuge for the couple. This is surrounded by a garden dotted with nooks and charming features for discovery by visitors.
