Sintra: Pena Palace and Park Entrance Ticket

2. Sintra: Pena Palace and Park Entrance Ticket

The palace is situated in the eastern part of the Park of Pena, which one has to pass through to reach the steep ramp built by the Baron of Eschwege that provides access to the castle-like building. The palace itself is composed of two wings: the former Manueline monastery of the Order of St. Jerome and the wing built in the 19th century by King Ferdinand II. These wings are ringed by a third architectural structure that is a fantastical version of an imaginary castle, whose walls one can walk around and which comprises battlements, watchtowers, an entrance tunnel and even a drawbridge. In 1838, King Ferdinand II acquired the former Hieronymite monastery of Our Lady of Pena, which was built by King Manuel I in 1511 on the top of the hill above Sintra and had been left unoccupied since 1834 when the religious orders were suppressed in Portugal. The monastery consisted of the cloister and its outbuildings, the chapel, the sacristy and the bell tower, which today form the northern section of the Palace of Pena, or the Old Palace as it is known. King Ferdinand began by making repairs to the former monastery, which, according to the historical sources of that time, was in very bad condition. He refurbished the whole of the upper floor, replacing the fourteen cells used by the monks with larger-sized rooms and covering them with the vaulted ceilings that can still be seen today. In roughly 1843, the king decided to enlarge the palace by building a new wing (the New Palace) with even larger rooms (the Great Hall is a good example of this), ending in a circular tower next to the new kitchens. The building work was directed by the Baron of Eschwege. The 1994 repair works restored the original colors of the Palace’s exterior: pink for the former monastery and ochre for the New Palace. In transforming a former monastery into a castle-like residence, King Ferdinand showed that he was heavily influenced by German romanticism, and that he probably found his inspiration in the Stolzenfels and Rheinstein castles on the banks of the Rhine, as well as Babelsberg Palace in Potsdam. These building works at the Palace of Pena ended in the mid-1860s, although further work was also undertaken at later dates for the decoration of the interiors. King Ferdinand also ordered the Park of Pena to be planted in the Palace’s surrounding areas in the style of the romantic gardens of that time, with winding paths, pavilions and stone benches placed at different points along its routes, as well as trees and other plants originating from the four corners of the earth. In this way, the king took advantage of the mild and damp climate of the Sintra hills to create an entirely new and exotic park with over five hundred different species of trees. The Palace of Pena was designated a National Monument in 1910 and forms part of the Cultural Landscape of Sintra, which has been classified by UNESCO as World Heritage since 1995.

My whole experience was just PERFECT. Where do I begin, our tour guide Igor was one of a kind and the best there is. What an asset to the company. He needs promotion/raise etc. Not only he was so nice and professional, he is so well informed and the details he provided us about this trip from start to finish was endless. It was the best tour, educational, fulfilling, and worth every penny. We learned so much about the regions, history, and the culture then and now. I recommend this tour to all and hope you all get Igor. He is a gem. The restaurant he recommended and took us to was awesome and the run down of the menu we were informed ahead was a plus. All In all the best and well spent day. Our group were real nice and of course the weather was a plus. Portugal will be missed big time. THANK YOU for your hospitality.

Fabulous tour, small group is the way to go to get closest access to the Peña Palace. Of Igor is your guide, definitely go with his lunch recommendation outside Sintra. Igor saved us so much time navigating all the sights and gave us many tips.

we had 3 nights in Lisbon and we decided to dedicate 1 days to caiscais and Sinta. We raccommend the trip as it is well organize in timing and stops. And if you are so lucky to have Igor as guide, you will have a great day

Remember to see if you still have to go through the museum ticket office to get the final ticket because on some sites it is necessary.

Allows you to take public transport and visit many places.
