Chalet Biester

by marielexoteria Online Now May 20, 2009 at 10:16 PM

Does anyone know if Chalet Biester is part of Palácio da Pena ticket or if I need a different ticket?

Another question: I found out how to go there from Palácio Nacional (starting from Praca da República) and it's about 700m or 8 minutes. Is this information reliable?

TIA and see you next week.

    I never heard about that chalet, but was in Pena a few times and I don't think it's included. You can walk from the town to Pena, but it will not take you 8 min. More than that. Driving is a short way though. If you meant, 8 m driving, it's quite possible - hard to believe about that 700 m figure though. I wouldn't miss the old castle "Castelo dos Mouros", much more interesting in my opinion. There are palaces and chateaus all over the world, but you don't see much castles built in the 10th century.
