Parques De Sintra Parque E Palacio Da Pena Feteira Rainha

This area of the Park hosts one of its most remarkable trees, a Western red cedar that stands out within this landscape on account of its impressive structure.


This tree stands as a sentinel looking out over one of the most exotic sites in the park, the Queen’s Fern Valley, a collection that brings together leafy arboreal ferns sourced from Australia and New Zealand.


They were planted in a valley with exceptional climatic conditions, traversed by a watercourse and flanked by tall deciduous oaks with their crowns merging above to evoke a structure that recalls the nave of a Gothic cathedral.
