Here’s the final batch of Pena Palace photographs. I couldn’t get enough of this magical place.
Even though we had a panicked hour when we managed to lose my mother!
Lesson learnt – never allow a 65 year old out of your sight, not for a second!
For a pensioner she can be remarkably swift and tricksy . . . finally located on a rampart.
Above are a few shots from the palace interior including an impressive pan set in the kitchen.
I absolutely love the textured sky in the picture above. It contrasts with the zigzag of the steeple and the scalloped details of the walls.
The palace was built in such a way as to be visible from any point in the wider park, which consists of a forest and luxuriant gardens with over five hundred different species of trees originating from the four corners of the earth.
We took a stroll through the gardens to enjoy another impressive vista of the palace from a distance.
Whichever way you look at it, it’s an incredible spectacle to see and definitely not too be missed if you make it to Sintra.
