Fairytale Castle Portugal

Everyone knows theĀ Walt Disney Castle, a beautiful fairytale castle in the middle of the world famous Disney theme park. In Portugal they have a similar fairytale castle, or palace I should say. It’s called Pena National Palace. Although it may appear like a real palace, it’s fake. Just like the Walt Disney Castle.

The palace was completed in 1845, so it’s only 166 years old. It’s build in the architecture style of Romanticism. Put simply, this means the architects collected details and ornaments they liked (from styles like the Classical Greek and Roman styles but also the medieval Gothic style). The result is what you’ll see in this OneMinute video. I have to say, the palace looks quite beautiful, but once you realize everything is fake… well…
