The first chapter of its history goes back to 1390 when the Hieronymites decided to erect a monastery in Penha Longa.

It remained here during five more centuries, taking advantage from the mild climate and the variety of hunting game that made the estate one of the favourite destinations of the Portuguese Monarchy.

Today you can also make part of Penha Longa´s history and revel in a life of real splendour.
