The palace was started in 1840 and finished in 1885, the year that the king died.

  11. 11. After the death of D. Fernando, in 1885, his second wife, the Countess of Edla, an opera singer and single mother, inherited the palace causing, at the time, a huge public controversy. In 1889, the widow of D. Fernando accepted a purchase bid by the King D. Luís I, although still reserving for herself the Chalet of the Countess, where she continued to live. After this acquisition, the Palace became part of the Portuguese national heritage. Surrounding it, lays the parque da Pena, occupying over 494 acres filled with gardens, ponds, bridges, caves, greenhouses and other small houses.
