Property descriptionFascinating pink palace built in the 16th century and remodeled in the 19th century by King Ferdinand II with a secret lover’s passage connecting the palace with his own royal palace. Outside we may find beautiful gardens with orange and lime trees, tropical flowers, pathways and bridges, a teahouse, peacocks and pond with swans. D. Fernando spared no expenses in transforming Quinta da Princesa into a palace for his mistress, the opera singer Elisa Hensler, Countess of Edla, whom he later married. There are still many architectural features of the palace that still remain, such as carved doors, hand-painted tiles and the original stables with two carriages. The palace is built over five floors, with a ballroom-sized drawing room, several reception rooms, 13 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. The palace can be used as a family home or be transformed into a boutique hotel or spa, always with the idyllic landscape of Sintra as background.
