“Original”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

An incredible mixture of styles, it's "kitsch" but interesting and funny. You can spend at least three hours wandering among the towers, under the arches, and catching great views of the surroundings : another castle, and Sintra.

“Wonderful Palace and Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is an incredible 'fairytale' palace on top of a mountain with wonderful eclectic architecture surrounded by a verdant and lush park which is wonderful for a relaxing stroll.

“Romantic palace...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

The palace at Sintra is magical, charming, and romantic. The park-like setting, the different styles of architecture, and the forever views all combine into a storybook fantasy that turns out to be more than illusion. Strolling along the pathways up to the palace, walking through the many lovely rooms, and drinking in the views across landscape and time will be one of the highlights of your trip to Portugal.

“Beautiful garden with a German forest flavour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is a beautiful park and gardens to wander around. Apparently there was a desire to replicate German forests, so several of the trees and plants have that flavour.

“Amazing palace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

The Pena palace is a beautiful building to wander through. It truely looks like it is straight out of a fairy tale. The moorish influence is evident In the building design. Rooms are nicely laid out with items and period pieces of interest. Walking through the beautiful gardens leading up to the palace is also recommended.
