I wanted to make a combo ticket with other ticket that turned out to be more expensive than with another ticket booking service, so we booked it there

Beautiful palace, not too busy so we were able to see everything without having to wait. Tickets were easy to purchase and we were able to skip the queue at the ticket office.

The palace was very interesting and quite beautiful and the views from the higher levels were spectacular. However, the crowds and lineups and numbers of people going through the palace at one time...3rd week of October which is not high season...as well as the cueing for buses in the rain and at the palace along with the journey returning to the train station were all unpleasant. I get the impression that the organizers' goal is to make as much money as possible, regardless of the quality of the visit to this beautiful place. Pack 'em in like sardines and to heck with how it impacts the visitor's experience! As long as the proceeds keep on coming by the bushel-full!! This was one of the reasons that I refused to visit the Monastery of Jerōnimos...lineups were huge in both directions!! There were other things to see without the lineups or expensive tickets!!

The Pena palace was not worth going inside and just walking around outside works of been good enough. Want alot to see inside and the fact that you were crammed in there like sardines you couldn't do too read things about the rooms as they kept you moving. I've seen bigger and more interesting palaces in my travels.

Interesting palace to visit, not too many people during a long weekend in October. An opportunity to see how the kings lived in Sintra. Nice personelle.

Grab these tickets to The Palace of Sintra so you can explore over 1,000 years of Portuguese history. The palace is immediately discernible by its two conical chimneys - a characteristic trait of Sintra itself. With its richly decorated rooms, galleries and corridors, it was a favorite for a succession of Portuguese royal families and their retinues, right until the end of the monarchy in 1910.

Spend your time marveling at how the natural landscape was used to merge Manueline, Gothic, and Mudejar designs. The windows with surmounted arches and walls covered in glazed tiles of geometric patterns are a testament to medieval brushwork and craftsmanship.
