    Portugal in August 2004 from top down in 3 weeks, a station was also in Sintra the National Palace Pena, beautiful the color design - we were lucky, as you can see on the photo were few visitors, of course we were also indoors - unfortunately at that time without photos.

    What can you say about this place. I went to visit Pena Palace in the morning and the castle of the moors in the afternoon on one long hike. I have got to say it was one of the best one day trips I have had anywhere in the world. Both locations are truly world class, well done Portugal, you have so much to offer the visitor.

    Honestly, I did not see the palace from the inside because I was afraid of being crushed by the masses. But it is also worth a visit from the outside. And then there is the park too.

    Both the palace itself and the surrounding park are a feast for the eyes - just beautiful!

    Located on Monte da Pena, the palace was built on the site of a former monastery where monks of the Hieronymite Order lived. The plans for the construction came from Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, who married in 1836, the Queen Maria II. He fell in love with Sintra and decided to buy the monastery and surrounding grounds to build the summer residence of the royal family.

    A little bit reminds me of the palaces at Neuschwanstein in Lego - brightly colored and somehow looks like from different eras, but very picturesque. Good to reach from Lisbon by train

    The park is unbelievably beautiful. Of course, the castle was overcrowded, but definitely worth a detour. The interiors are furnished with historic interiors, photos are not allowed there. If you want to see the interiors you should be there early, otherwise you will be in a very long line!
