This palace offers stunning views and plenty of history, so it's perfect if you're looking to combine culture and nature. The park is pretty and, although the palace wasn't to my taste, it's certainly a must-visit nonetheless. What a shame that a lot of it...More

Pena Palace in Lisbon is an ugly place resembling a castle in a third rate theme park more than a palace! The colours are loud and the architecture a chaotic mix of different styles. There is not a central architectural theme. It bears no comparison...More

We took bus 434 from outside the National Palace. It is a magical place with great views. We bought combo tickets for 3 sites at the train station. It saved us only about 3/4 euros but we were able to walk right into each of...More
