  • Sintra: Pena Palace and Park Skip-the-Ticket-Line Entrance

    3. Sintra: Pena Palace and Park Skip-the-Ticket-Line Entrance

    The palace is situated in the eastern part of the Park of Pena, which one has to pass through to reach the steep ramp built by the Baron of Eschwege that provides access to the castle-like building. The palace itself is composed of two wings: the former Manueline monastery of the Order of St. Jerome and the wing built in the 19th century by King Ferdinand II. These wings are ringed by a third architectural structure that is a fantastical version of an imaginary castle, whose walls one can walk around and which comprises battlements, watchtowers, an entrance tunnel and even a drawbridge. In 1838, King Ferdinand II acquired the former Hieronymite monastery of Our Lady of Pena, which was built by King Manuel I in 1511 on the top of the hill above Sintra and had been left unoccupied since 1834 when the religious orders were suppressed in Portugal. The monastery consisted of the cloister and...

    A very wonderful place that can get very busy for good reason. Buying the ticket beforehand allowed us to avoid the queue for tickets, which was quite long.

  • Lisbon: Jerónimos Monastery Entrance Ticket

    4. Lisbon: Jerónimos Monastery Entrance Ticket

    With this access, learn more about how King Manuel I commissioned the monastery in 1496 to honor the Infante for his devotion to Our Lady and faith in St. Jerome. Discover how the monastery of St. Mary of Belém was donated to the monks of the Order of St. Jerome. For this reason, it is commonly known as the Jerónimos Monastery. This national monument was classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and is located near the city of Lisbon, next to the Tagu River. In 1833, when the order was dissolved, the monastery was used as a school and orphanage until 1940. In the 19th century, the church became the monument for local heroes and poets such as Luís de Camões and Vasco da Gama. Come and discover what is not simply a notable work of architecture, but also an important part of Portuguese identity and culture.

    I thought I was paying for more areas of the monestary and tours. It was too expensive just for the small area of the monestary that was basically a court yard and some rooms. The church was free to everyone. I would suggest skip the small monestay next to the church and just go to the free church are.

  • National Palace of Sintra and Gardens Fast Track Ticket

    6. National Palace of Sintra and Gardens Fast Track Ticket

    Explore 1,000 years of Portuguese history with a skip-the-line entry ticket to the National Palace of Sintra. Enter the historic monument, first built as a Moorish castle after the Umayyad conquest of Hispania in the 8th century. Follow in the footsteps of the first king of Portugal, who extended the fortress in 1147. Marvel at how later extensions made use of the natural landscape as you admire the Manueline and Mudejar designs of the interior courtyards and discover windows with surmounted arches and walls covered in glazed tiles of geometric patterns.

    We did not save enough time for the visit (exploring Pena palace took longer than anticipated) and we missed out on seeing the gardens, as they were already closing. I recommend better time management;)

  • Sintra: Monserrate Palace and Park Skip-the-Line Ticket

    7. Sintra: Monserrate Palace and Park Skip-the-Line Ticket

    Four kilometers from Sintra’s historic center is the unique Monserrate Palace, located in the center of a beautiful 30-hectare park. The Park and Palace of Monserrate were included in the Cultural Landscape of Sintra, which was been classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Site in 1995. The 19th-century castle is known not only for its unique Moorish-Gothic-Indian style architecture but also for its surrounding gardens.  Over the years, the gardens have welcomed plant species from all over the world. In the various gardens, you will find surprisingly contrasting scenery, from tree ferns from Australia and New Zealand, to agaves and yuccas from Mexico. Seek out the Himalayan rhododendron and the bamboo-fringed Japanese garden abloom with camellias. Enjoy a stroll along the paths and discover ruins, lakes and waterfalls. 

    Lovely park with lots of different plant species. Monserrate Palace is absolutely beautiful and great for some romantic photos . I only wish that the digital map was more easily available, so the website does need some refining. At the moment you can only find the map, either by searching on the site, or by going to the “Professionals” area and then selecting “Press”.
