The Terrace of the Triton opens up onto the eastern landscape while its western most extent borders the New Palace. To the north, there is the Old Convent, reachable through the two galleries of overlaying canopied arches built in the 19th century. On the ground floor of the New Palace there are two vaulted passageways (tunnels) that enable carriages to get around the Patio of the Arches on the west hand side and return to the tunnel. On the Terrace of the Triton, the High Cross may be spotted on the highest point in the Sintra hills (528m above sea-level), as well as the statue of the Knight far distant in the Park. This may have been designed deliberately as a scenographic feature contributing to the “medieval” ambience intended for the “Castle of Pena”.
The Pena Palace is on the Portuguese Riviera. This beautiful monument can be easily seen on the hill in the mountains. It is a national monument of the 19th-century and is probably most romantic palace in the word. The building is considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.
