Pena Park

Recommended
To the south of Sintra, the very attractive Pena Park covers an area of 200ha on the granite slopes of the Serra. It is planted with many rare species and has a large number of pools and fountains. A visit on foot is quite charming, but the motorist in a hurry will have to be content with driving along the small roads which criss-cross it, or ascending to the tops of its two highest points, one of which has the Palace of Pena and the other the Cruz Alta.
