Parque da Pena, Sintra

I sometimes tend to forget that I live in a privileged place. I’m within a few Km away of some of the most beautiful places one can asks for. The Pena Palace, in Sintra is surely one of those cases. It’s a nineteen-century romantic stravaganza located in a dramatic spot, on top of a mountain. Build by a king for the aristocracy, it is today, fortunately enough, accessible to us all.
