Activities in Sintra

Palacio da Pena & Gardens Ticket

20 reviews | 412 travellers
One of those places that you should not miss. At 40m. by train (do not go by car, it is difficult to park and avoid the weekend) from Lisbon you will find a small very touristy city that houses this wonderful German palace in the middle of the natural park. In Sintra, next to the bus stop, we hired a guide with a car for € 10 / person to go up to the Palacio da Pena, pick us up after the visit and then go down to the Palacio de Regaleira. There were 6 of us and it was great!

Palacio da Pena & Gardens Ticket

With this ticket, you can visit the most iconic castle in Portugal and walk through its labyrinths and colorful rooms. Are you ready to visit the place that has become synonymous with Sintra?

Built in the 18th century by order of King Ferdinand II consort, the Palacio da Pena attracts millions of visitors every year. To access it, it's necessary to cross its gardens through winding paths surrounded by trees and exotic plants brought from all continents. Ferdinand II, a lover of the arts and Romantic style, wished to create this fairytale setting after arriving in Sintra and falling in love with its scenery. 

Once you reach the top of the hill, the path will lead you directly to the palace entrance. You'll be able to access its interior, just as spectacular as the exterior, and freely explore its courtyards and towers decorated with red, yellow, and blue tiles and stuccoes - a gorgeous labyrinth of color.

Its combination of neo-Gothic, neo-Mudejar, and neo-Manueline architecture has led to the Pena Palace being declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1995, and it has been a National Monument since 1910. And since 2013 this multicolored palace is part of the European Network of Royal Residences.
