This was just a fun place to stop and enjoy the geese and the architecture of the Duck House. Not sure who designed it but these ducks are very lucky to have a pretty nice hangout.

The Parque de Pena is gorgeous and HUGE! We didn't know what the tiny little castles in the middle of the ponds were at first. Look like tiny castles surrounded by beautiful moats (lakes). Almost looks like they're just part of the design of the...More

You can take some really great photos here, especially of the first duck house you see as you enter. On a late afternoon just as the sun set, it can look really mysterious, something out of a medieval movie. This place has so much more...More
