Photographer's Note

It was hard to leave Lisbon. It is such a photogenic city. However, Lisbon has also a lot of beautiful places to visit around. Having just three weeks for Portugal, I had to make hard choices but I decided that as a hobby photographer I cannot miss the colorful Pena Palace in Sinta.

More info about the palace from Wikipedia below (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pena_Palace)
The Pena Palace (Portuguese: Palácio da Pena) is a Romanticist castle in São Pedro de Penaferrim, in the municipality of Sintra, on the Portuguese Riviera. The castle stands on the top of a hill in the Sintra Mountains above the town of Sintra, and on a clear day it can be easily seen from Lisbon and much of its metropolitan area. It is a national monument and constitutes one of the major expressions of 19th-century Romanticism in the world. The palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. It is also used for state occasions by the President of the Portuguese Republic and other government officials.
