Mermaid Room at the Palace of Sintra, Sintra Portugal
SINTRA, Portugal - The painted ceiling of the Mermaid Room (Sala das Sereias). The painting dates to the 18th century, although the room itself dates to the beginning of the 15th century and was originally a wardrobe. The Palace of Sintra (Palácio Nacional de Sintra) is a mediaeval royal palace in Sintra and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses several sites in and around Sintra, just outside Lisbon. The palace dates to at least the early 15th century and was at its peak during the 15th and 16th centuries. It remains one of the best-preserved royal residences in Portugal.
