The exotic Park and National Palace of Pena, a World Heritage Site known for its Romanticist architecture, is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. While the foundation of this palace dates back to a chapel in the Middle Ages, the current appearance is mostly the work of German architect Baron Wilhelm Ludwig von Eschwege. He mixed Neo-Gothic, Neo-Manueline, Neo-Islamic, and Neo-Renaissance styles to create this dramatic structure. Tour the palace to admire the building's restored red and yellow facade, interior design, and antique furniture.

  • Very nice historical palace to visit. There is lot of walk so wear comfortable shoes, lots of uphill walk. Very colourful and well maintained palace to visit. It has nice restaurant inside for quick snacks. I really enjoyed its colours. Also beautiful view of city and ocean from top of palace. Beautiful gardens and trees in the way to palace to enjoy scenic view. They give you 2 hours time slot to see palace so not much crowd. I spent wonderful day there.
  • A very nice palace to visit. The park around it is amazing. A must to see when you go to Lisbon. The inside of the palace is kind of small and the visit is very straightforward. A lot of tourist on site but the line is going fast. The ticket are sold with a time slot so no need to rush.
