Later visit the Moorish Castle, situated 400 meters above sea level , evokes the Muslim presence in these parts . Definitely conquered by D. Afonso Henriques , in 1147 , there was built the first Christian church in the county , the Chapel of St. Peter , now in ruins . Nearby, from the top of the walls, a splendid view over the village and the mountains.
Then we go to the Pena Palace built in the nineteenth century summer residence of the prince consort D. Fernando Saxe Coburg-Gotha, husband of Queen Maria II. The set was designed by the Baron of Eschwege and makes symbiosis of neo-Moorish elements, neo-Gothic and neo-Manueline with elements of oriental architecture, an experience in which the eclecticism was taken to the extreme. It must highlight the tiles of the nineteenth century to imitate the Moorish-style tiles, a copy of the Chapter House of the Convent of Christ window and the figure of Triton. Its exotic character is accentuated by the lush vegetation of Pena Park, with which it forms an inseparable whole. The park has a certain Nordic ambience, inspired by the romantic gardens of Germany, which has not been unconnected with the taste of Prince Consort, German origin. The fact that the palace is situated in one of the highest peaks of the Serra de Sintra gives you not only magnificent views as inserts in the very landscape of the region. Inside it is preserved the furniture and the royal residence environment.
