Palácio e Parque da Pena

This palace of fairy tales is one of the most eclectic works in Europe, built on an old convent which was eventually incorporated into the new building ( including a Manueline cloister decorated with tiles of the sixteenth century). Shows neo- Gothic elements, neo- Manueline, neo- Moorish, neo- Renaissance , creating one of the best examples of European Romanticism . It includes watchtowers, an entrance decorated with a mythological figure and an interior largely decorated with oriental porcelain and European furniture as the royal family left in 1910. In the kitchen find themselves large utensils used to prepare the real pub. Often compared with the castles of Bavaria, the Pena Palace is so symbolic for Portugal as Neuschwanstein is to Germany, and the Portuguese palace two decades older.
