Pena Palace is absolutely stunning and definitely worth a visit, but I’d recommend to buy the ticket to the park which is 7.50€, and not the park + entry to the palace ticket which costs double. The park ticket allows you to visit all the...More

The palace is fantastic both inside and outside. The colours and decoration are surprising and you can't get to a new room without an "awe". The price is a bith high, but completely worth it.

The Pena Palace is a 19th century Romanticism Era castle located in Sintra, Portugal and stands atop the Sintra Mountains. The ornate palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is worth the climb! The hills are steep, but the Palace, Gardens, and views are breathtaking.

This beautiful castle is surrounded by a large park. You can buy the ticket without visiting the inside of the castle only from the ticket counter, not from the ticket machine.

Oh my! This place is gorgeous and well worth visiting. It's colorful and lovely - although it's swarming with people!

Visited in November and paid the admission price for the Palace and gardens (14 eur pp). Enjoyed the walk up the hill to the palace entrance, however was disappointed to see a long queue already formed. Hadn't realised that the queue went around corner after...More

No problem with buying tickets on the spot. You can also buy them in Sintra Train Station - no queues, and helpful ladies there.
