Photographer's Note

Town of Sintra has cooler climate than nearby Lisbon. Thus it became popular getaway for Portuguese royals, aristocrats and wealthy travellers in 1800's. Perhaps the most remarkable building of Sintra is Pena Palace (Palácio da Pena) located high on a hill top above the city. It was the summer residence for the Portuguese royal family.
This view is before the entrance to the palace yard, giving some foretaste of how the palace looks. I'll upload more views in the coming days.
