Palácio da Pena, Sintra

The cloister and chapel of an Hieronymite monastery from the 16th century occupies part of the complex. Ferdinand integrated them into the palace, so preventing further deterioration. The triton arch, watched over by a sea god, serves as a reminder of a glorious ear in Portugal's history.
