A colorful Portuguese marvel

Step into a colorful fairytale as you approach the Pena Palace with its vibrant yellow walls, whimsical red turrets, and captivating Manueline Gothic windows. As you move through the palace, your expert guide will unveil the palace's captivating origin story, a tale that begins with its humble beginnings as a monastery and later culminates in the magnificent construction completed in 1839. Be dazzled by the palace interiors as you explore the intricate tilework patterns and the geometric motifs adorning the Arab Room, or picture royal feasts taking place in front of the grand hearths of the Main Kitchen.

Unveiling King Ferdinand II's romantic vision

Apart from the decadent interiors, the palace is home to King Ferdinand II, a proponent of Romanticism. You can notice his influence as your guide points out the Manueline Gothic windows, whimsical palace turrets, and the variety of exotic plants in the Pena park. Feel like royalty yourself as you peek into the King's study, perhaps catching a glimpse of quills, inkwells, and stacks of paper hinting at his intellectual pursuits. Want more? Imagine yourself sipping tea from delicate china in the picturesque Queen’s terrace that overlooks the palace gardens.
