Set on top of a high hill the staggering opulence of the beautifully restored Pena Palace is a delight. Not to be missed.

We've arrived to Sintra and realized that it'll take us 50 minutes to walk up to the Palace of Pena from the town below. So we took the car and parked in the Palace parking area. We wanted to purchase 4 tickets for the Palace...More
