Thank you!
The Pena National Palace (Palácio Nacional da Pena) is a Romanticist palace in São Pedro de Penaferrim, municipality of Sintra, Portugal. The palace stands on the top of a hill above the town of Sintra, and on a clear day it can be easily seen from Lisbon and much of its metropolitan area. The palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. The interiors of the Pena Palace were adapted to serve as the Summer residence of the royal family. It has amazing stuccos, painted walls in trompe-l'oeil and various revetments in tile from the 19th century, forming part of the numerous royal collections. Many of the state rooms have been restored to how they were in 1910 and many of the original fittings still remain.

  • Que trabajos en los techos tan fantásticos, son maravillosos. Los vitrales de las ventanas, los muebles, todo es artístico , sensacional. Solo hay algo que me ha sorprendido, las habitaciones son muy pequeñas, quizás sea el efecto de la fotografía. Gracias por estas presentaciones magníficas de este increible Palacio. Pilar
