Pena Palace, a Romanticist castle and built between 1842–1854 by King consort Ferdinand II, became a national monument in 1910 and transformed into a museum. It is also used for cultural events such as concerts and for state occasions.

Build in a hectic-romantic style, expressing 19th-century romanticism in Portugal, denoting clear influences from the Manueline and Moorish styles of architecture, it is surrounded by a gardenesque park and garden. The palace was built in such a way as to be visible from any point in the park.

In 1995 the palace was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
