Palácio Nacional da Pena

Pena National Palace was constructed on the top of a hill above the ruins of a former Monastery with Manueline traces, and used to be the summer residence for the Portuguese Kings. This impressive work is the result of the perfect conjunction of different architectural styles such as romanticism Neo-Gothic, Neo-Manueline, Moorish and Indian. This entire ensemble stands out, with the forest and vegetations from Pena’s Park help, the Palace exotic and outstanding aspect. On the interior it is still preserved the Royal family Residence ambience.
