THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SINTRA AND KING D. PEDRO
This room evokes the atmosphere of the Sintra Mountains, located in western Portugal, just a short 30 km from Lisbon.
The Sintra Mountains are enshrined in myths and legends, which arose from its ancient history. Its secluded location made it a perfect setting for palaces and castles, such as the Pena Palace, the Sintra National Palace, the Palace of Monserrate and the Moorish Castle, far from curious eyes.
Often did the Royal Family spend their summers there due to its temperate climate, when the temperatures of busy Lisbon were too hot to bare.
It was only after the birth of D. Pedro V that his father, D. Fernando II, started planning the construction of the Pena Palace from the ruins of an ancient convent that sat on the top of the mountains, overlooking the sea. In his vision, D. Fernando captured the essence of his Bavarian upbringing, projecting it into the architecture of the palace, which resembles the Neuschwanstein Castle, built by D. Fernando’s cousin and King of Bavaria, Ludwig II.
D. Pedro V had a special connection to the palace, having spent, if not the best, certainly the happiest moments of his life there. Both he and Queen D. Estefânia, his wife, were often caught holding hands in the gardens in an unusual gesture for royalty, the epitome of a short but breathtaking romance that ended too soon, but would somehow last forever.
