palacio de pena

The Pena National Palace, a remarkable piece of architecture, is one of several attractions that have made the Portuguese town of Sintra a World Heritage Site. The postcrosser who sent the card is from the area. She says that the palace grounds are "a calm and beautiful spot to go for long walks and enjoy nature." She adds that the traditional food is also excellent, in case you need another reason to plan a trip to Portugal.
