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.
Good bye Portugal! Muito obrigada!!!!!

Transcript

  • 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-2015101-palacio-pena5/
  • 2. The Palácio Nacional da Pena is located at Estrada da Pena, which is on the upper part of the Parque da Pena. The palace is a National Monument and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. King Fernando II acquired the lands of a monastery in ruins in 1838. He chose the Prussian architect Baron Ludwig von Eshwege and the help of the Portuguese Possidonio da Silva. The palace was started in 1840 and finished in 1885, the year that the king died.
  • 3. The artistic influences from all parts of the world are clearly evident in various sections of the Pena Palace in Sintra. One of the popular rooms in tours of the Pena Palace is the Arab Room where grand trompel’oeil frescoes cover the walls and ceilings. It is undeniably one of the most beautiful rooms in the Palacio da Pena.
  • 4. The palace’s extravagant interior is decorated in late Victorian and Edwardian furnishings, rich ornaments, paintings, and priceless porcelain preserved just as the royal family left them.
