PalÃ¡cio da Pena, Sintra, Portugal
over 1 year by be-am 5 / 5These are actually two large gardens joined together - the Park of Pena and the Garden of the Countess of Edla. Both are landscape gardens with various features - ponds, towers, fern gardens, stables, temples, chapels, basins, hills, fabulous lookouts etc, all in a phantastic surrounding, giant trees of all sorts between huge rocks. We walked there all day in November - just an unbelievable place! Castle itself is comparable with Neuschwanstein kitsch in a way; the moorish court yard and the whole setting though is also phantastic! Must go!
about 3 years by Jeanne 5 / 5I cannot say enough about how breathtaking and amazing this place is. It is not, however, for the faint of heart nor failing of strength. Worth the unnerving 2â‚¬ bus ride up, worth the 16â‚¬ ticket price, worth all the walking through the enchanting forest garden.
