From the Rossio station in Lisbon (40 minutes trip) you can be in this small town called SINTRA. Since we arrived and began to discover it, it was like feeling in a fairy tale … full of small castles among lush trees and beautiful gardens
One of its biggest attractions is the QUINTA DE REGALEIRAS (Unesco world heritage), a fascinating place to spend hours walking through its enchanted gardens, its initiatory pit with its mystery and its caves with waterfalls …
Surely the highlight in this city is the PALACIO DA PENA …. a wonder of colors and architecture famous throughout the world. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, Palacio da Pena dates from 1836 and it was the main residence of Ferdinand II of Portugal who ordered it to be built. Located at the top of the hill it is necessary to go by bus since the slope is quite steep. The best of the palace is outside it, its colors and its various towers are its greatest attraction …. inside it is beautiful but no more than other castles of the time ..
The schedules of the Palacio da Pena – in the summer season – are as follows: From 9:45 in the morning to 7 in the afternoon, although the ticket sale ends at six fifteen. The park opens from 8:30 in the morning until 8.
