After arriving at the Pena Palace by bus, you need to walk up the mountain to reach the palace. There are also small buses that can be sent up the mountain and go back and forth three people.

Since there is no time to go to the Moorish castle, it is good to stand at the top of the palace.
This castle, which looks like the Great Wall, was built when the Arabs occupied the Iberian Peninsula in the 8th and 9th centuries. If there is more time, I think it is worthwhile to look at it in the past.
The church inside the castle is not as grand as many famous European cathedrals, but it is also a standard church.
