A selection of the winning images from the 2017 Travel Photographer of the Year awards were displayed earlier this year in the stunning World Heritage setting of the Manège in the Parque da Pena, Sintra near Lisbon.

This beautiful location saw over 400,000 visitors during the summer exhibition period. Located in the Sintra hills, the Park and Palace of Pena are the fruit of King Ferdinand II’s creative genius and the greatest expression of 19th-century romanticism in Portugal, denoting clear influences from the Manueline and Moorish styles of architecture. The palace was built in such a way as to be visible from any point in the park, which consists of a forest and luxuriant gardens with over five hundred different species of trees originating from the four corners of the earth.
