    Such a beautiful place. NOT just the palace but also the village of Sintra. If you are in Lisbon for a visit don't forget to see Sintra and this palace.

    Muito bonito. Opte em ir nele antes do castelo dos Mouros, pois depois dos castelo dos Mouros você estará muito cansado.

    The Pena Palace stands as a perfect example of the romantic architecture that can be found in Sintra.

    Este lugar es simplemente hermooooso la entrada cuesta 11 € pero sólo paga 6€ por que entras al jardín y ya en el castillo no hay nadie y puedes entrar también!!

    Un sitio mágico con encanto especial, eso si hay que subir hasta su empinada cima, aunque hay autobuses que hacen el trayecto.

  • Emmanuel A.

    Ir a Portugal e não ir a Sintra é uma grande falta, Assim como ir a Sintra e não ir no palácio de pena. É o mais belo da cidade.

    Climb from the lakes area up to the palace and enjoy the park full of exotic trees. The palace is a must-see .

    Don't waste your money on visiting the palace or whatever it is.The garden and Atlantic view are all it takes.Simply spectacular.

    Mais um dos belos Palácios para se conhecer na região. Vá cedo para conhecer antes o Castelo dos Mouros. São muitos cômodos no palácio.

    The inside of the palace is a typical museum with a set path. The outside and the rest of the garden is way more interesting to explore.

    Awesome to walk around the palace in the park. You can just walk on the palace for free, so you don't really NEED to buy a ticket for that.

  • Emir M.

    Take the lake entrance to feel the amazing atmosphere and climb inside mystique forest til' you see the beautiful castle with lovely colors up there. Being there is like a fairytale. 💜

    Входной билет 11+3 евро автобус, который привезет к замку и до везет обратно , в непогоду лучше купить , ехать не много , не мало.

    Ahora mismo están restaurando las fachadas, entonces no me sorprendió nada. Pero una vez dentro mejoró lo anterior. Un poco carillo, pero vale la pena sí estas de paso por Sintra.

    Take the 434 bus return ticket 5 euros on the right outside of sintra train station. Buy tickets on board. Don't even attempt to walk. 12 euro to get in. Another 3 for a bus up the hill. Pricey.

    Very crowded at the palace, but you can get away easily by walking the grounds.

    Llegar después de una hora y apreciar el conjunto, el parque y la vista de Sintra

    Стоит позаботиться об одежде потеплее если надумали побывать тут в сентябре вечерком.

    Palazzo molto particolare. Vale la pena la camminata fino alla croce per poterlo vedere dall'alto (1 h circa dal cancello più a sud)

    You hate tourist crowds? Then don't so this. You love pittoresque castles with moorish elements? Do it anyways!

    finding a place to park is difficult so park by the lagos lakes and walk 10 min to the entrance of the palace.. then get the bus which comes every 15 min to drop u straight at the palace's doors..

    shahad M · August 31, 2014
  • shahad M.

    avoid the sun heat in the summer and go there late afternoon to make th best of the outdoor places.. enjoy the view from the above and the take a look at the old interior design of the palace's rooms.

    Lindo parece tirado de um filme de fantasia como em geral toda a vila de sintra

    Visita obligatòria. L'entrada costa 14€ (jardins+palau). Val la pena la visita i les vistes que hi ha a dalt. Era la casa d'estiu de Don Fernando II.

    Mireia Fernández · August 25, 2014
  • Jean-Sébastien C.

    A voir absolument si vous passez dans la région. Château romantique dément et kitch, parc très vaste pour se promener.

    Bring sneakers and water if you're walking up from Sintra.

    It is like a fairy tale castle, you should definitely see it!

    Honestly, not so great. I would do montserrat and regaleira instead of this overcrowed palace. The gardens are ok but not crazy thought.

    There is a car that can take you around the park. Same as the mini bus drop off point for castle entrance on top. Car comes every 25mins, worthwhile as the park area is too big unless you have time

    Catarina · August 11, 2014

    Go as early as possible to avoid the horrific crowd, plus for photos, it is better as castle entrance faces the east.

    Catarina · August 11, 2014
  • Enrique R.

    La entrada es cara, pero el palacio y el entorno lo valen. Si vas en bus es recomendable cogerlo para volver a Sintra en la parada anterior a la puerta principal. Te ahorrarás una cola interminable.

    É o palácio mais bonito de Portugal! E tem uma vista maravilhosa.

    Antiguo castillo del rey. Se puede visitar. En su interior conserva mobiliario original. Merece la pena subir desde Sintra a pie.

    This palace is worth a trip to Sintra. It is so romantic and beautiful. Take your time when looking at all the rooms and take in all the lovely details.

    хорошее место для фотосессии,на фотографиях этот замок выглядит намного более живописным,чем в реальности.Ему требуется серьезный ремонт.Но виды с террас открываются отличные,смотреть не насмотреться
