Interestingly enough, he happened to be the King of Portugal! Thus, from one individual's dream, the Pena Palace emerged, a structure straight out of fairy tales. This extraordinary building is a captivating fusion of grand Oriental and Western architectural styles, constructed on the grounds of a former monastery. We invite you to stroll along the palace walls, explore its rooms, delve into the stories of its inhabitants, unravel the enigmatic symbols, and discover more about Portugal through this exceptional monument.
