Portugal: Pena Palace in Sintra

On Friday I got four postcards: one from Portugal, one from Thailand, one from Estonia and one from Germany.

The card from Portugal shows the Pena Palace in Sintra. Sintra became the first centre of European Romantic architecture in the 19th century. The Pena Palace was constructed on the remains of a ruined monastery and served as a summer residence for the Portuguese royal family. Today it houses a museum. The Cultural Landscape of Sintra is since 1995 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
