The attraction was good. Lovely walking through the palace and especially the gardens. We purchased tickets which included audio but the audio used at the Palace was completely different to that of Headout. We then had to purchase and download the app used by the Pena Palace website.

It is so magnificent. The interior with the beautiful rooms. Just splendid. Only issue was the traffic plus the time to get thru the gardens. I think you should mention thst they should start at least 1 1/2 hrs before your ticket entrance time. It took us 55 minutes on the bus to get up there and the to walk thru the gardens.

Smooth purchase process. The problem is that the audio guide was only available in English. Apart from that, the audio guide, which was from CLIO MUSE, did not appear in the application that already had it downloaded. We had to open it through the web browser.

I paid in advance for the transfer from drop off to gate so I wouldn't have to walk the "30min" walk uphill. The bus was crowded so we walked. It only took 10 min to get to castle, not 30. It was uphill but not bad. So I never used the transfer up or down. In addition, I paid for audio guide but didn't see place to pick them up. The tour was very short and the signs at each room explained everything. The castle was good and I enjoyed it
