Pena Palace - Sintra

The fantastic, Disney like Pena Palace in Sintra.

Built in 1839 for Dom Fernando II it used the ruins of an existing Hieronymite Monastery as its basis. The styling draws on the castles of Barvaria but there is also a good deal of influence from the Moorish, Gothic and Manueline styles.
