Description The Pena Palace and a view of Sintra, Portugal, on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2005. The Pena Palace is the most accomplished and remarkable example of Portuguese Romantic architecture. Built at approximately 500 meters above sea level, it goes back to 1839, when the prince consort D. Fernando II of Saxe-Coburg (1816-1885) bought the ruins of the Hieronymus Monastery of Our Lady of Pena and began to make it into a small palace. To oversee the work, he called Baron Eschwege, whose inspiration for this remarkable edifice came from palaces in Bavaria. Extremely fanciful, Pena's architecture uses not only Moorish, gothic and Manueline motifs, but also the Wagnerian spirit of Central Europe's Schinkel castles.
