Royal Summer Getaway

Originally created in the medieval ages as a monastery, the Pena National Palace (or Palácio Nacional da Pena) was the site of royal getaways for nearly 600 years. After being severly damaged in the Lisbon earthquake of 1755, the site was abandoned until 1838 when the King consort Ferdinand II decided to make it the Portuguese royalty's summer residence. The palace incorporates many different architectural designs including traditional Portuguese, Islamic, and medieval. After the Portuguese revolution of 1910 the site was turned into a museum and historical site.
