Elite Recommends – Lisbon’s Ultimate VIP Experience

By Chris Boyle

PENA NATIONAL PALACE

Elite Traveler has selected a fabulous VIP Lisbon experience

TOUR AND DINE IN THE PALACES OF SINTRA

HORSE AND CARRIAGE IN SINTRA NATIONAL PARK

 

This stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site has inspired visitors for centuries, with Lord Bryon declaring it a “Glorious Eden.”

The majestic beauty of the landscape has long attracted the elite and nestled among the evergreen landscape are the palaces and homes of the Portuguese Royal Family. The National Palace of Sintra dates back to the 15th century and its architectural combination of Moorish, Manueline and Gothic influences reflect Portugal’s rich history. The rooms are breathtaking and carry the coats of arms of Portugal’s aristocracy. While vibrant and imaginative architecture can be found throughout the town, The Pena National Palace is truly extraordinary and well worth a visit. Perched on a wooded hill overlooking the town and build by King Fernando II, the Palace’s vivid array of colors and fairytale towers makes it one of the world’s greatest examples of 19th century Romanticism.

Take a private after-hours guided tour through the stunning palaces and absorb the unique atmosphere, and learn from the experts about the history, art, nature and architecture of Sintra. End your trip with a spectacular private dinner prepared by top Portuguese chefs.
