We were in the park and decided to walk past the lakes on our way back to the entrance after seeing the palace. It was a nice walk, but not worth a huge detour. They were a little scummy and old looking.

A pleasant way to get down from the palace and was better and more enjoyable than the palace. Continue straight across when you exit the gate and you can walk up to the Castle of the Moors or down into the old town. A bit...More

Since the palace is the main attraction we did not make this park the focus of our visit but it is very good nevertheless. Has many places where you can get your little corner of tranquility. Is just below the palace and has two mini...More

Nice part of the park. Don't think it is significantly better or worse than any other parts of the park, but nice enough. This is where we started.

From the Palace to the gardens, you cannot go wrong seeing this attraction. Do make sure you get there early, and see the Palace first or you will stand in queues forever. But the gardens are fantastic, and you can spend hours walking down the...More

This was one of the highlights of our walk through the park, away from the crowds queueing to get into the palace. Lots of natural beauty, supplemented by the quaint man-made duck 'houses' in the lower lakes. A great opportunity to recharge the batteries before...More

We had limited time in Pena Park and we were glad we chose to walk through the Vale dos Lagos. It is easy to walk with lots of water, reflections, royal duck houses, and a good view up to the castle high above.

It’s worth to visit this very lush and green park along with more famous hilltop castle. Very quiet and not as much popular as castle, yet it offers great escape from crowds and the city of Lisbon. There’s a combined ticket to both attractions, make...More

We did the castle first and explored the park afterwards. It's hard to imagine that there's also a ticket booth to Palace and Park at the Lagos/Lakes bus stop of bus #434. Hardly anybody enters the park here. Good thing because we hardly saw any...More

This is a beautifully laid out park. A big park area you can rest after the castle tour. Not many people around.

Get your map at the entrance to the palace. The map is very detailed, but not all that clear. The little depictions on the map are probably your best guide. There isn't really one trail. There are many trails that lead you... More
