Get ready to discover one of the top attractions of Portugal, the 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.
The National Pena Palace is one of the most important elements in the Cultural Landscape of Sintra and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The construction of the Palace began in 1839 around the ruins of an old Hieronymite monastery erected in the 16th-century by King Manuel I and acquired by Ferdinand II.
The park consists of a forest and luxuriant gardens with over 500 different species of trees originating from the four corners of the earth. In the park, the expression of the romantic aesthetic combined with the search for exoticism in the impetuosity of nature led the king to design winding paths that lead the visitor to discover outstanding viewpoints like the Chalet of the Countess of Edla, a fascinating place built for the Countess of Edla and one of the great love stories of Portuguese history, a magical place that will completely amaze you.
This ticket also includes a hop-on hop-off service that will allow you to get on and off at different emblematic points of the park. Simply show your entrance ticket and hop on!
