portugal: pena palace

The town of Sintra (about 30 minutes by train from Lisbon), was once the home of Portugal's aristocracy. Today, there are a number of palaces, castles and other breathtaking sites to visit. The Pena Palace was built by Prince Ferdinand in the 19th century and designed by a German architect who mixed German, Moorish and Portuguese styles to come up with the design.
