Palácio da Pena part 2: a glimpse of the past

There is heaps to explore at the Pena Palace. As if the outside wasn’t fascinating enough, the inside was pretty amazing as well. Beautiful tiles, ornate arched ceilings, lusciously decorated rooms…this palace has it all.

I do wonder what it must have been like all those centuries ago, when this palace was a lot more isolated than it is now and the roads weren’t as good as they are today. Still, I’m happy this place is available for visits, to catch a glimpse of life in Portugal a few hundred years ago. Fascinating!
