  • Totally worth checking out if you can handle the 30+ minute walk there. The chalet itself is not very big but lots of cool stuff to see on the way, a very enjoyable walk. Gardeners house also looked cool, shame it's boarded up and you can't see the fireplace inside!
  • After visiting the palace I recommend visiting also the Chalet da Condessa D’Edla ( the acces is included in the entrance ticket for the Park and National Palace of Pena) From the Pena Palace go down through the garden, on the left side,to the west, to the lakes area, 5 min walk. There you’ll find another gate. From here you can go 900 m walk to the Chalet. I recommend the walk because it is an amazing paved path through the forest and you can see very cool views of the Palacio da Pena. The Chalet reopened to the public after a long process of recovery and restoration after the building was destroyed by fire in 1999. Is a must because you can see interesting and unique cork decorations.
