Great gardens, beautiful palace, amazing view and please be aware of the queues!
“This Moorish Castle built in the 8th century is in the romantic playground of Sintra. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and no more than 25 minutes by car. Our advise would be to take an Uber taxi to avoid winding, narrow roads and difficult parking. Alternatively bus tours are available or we can recommend a good driver for the day.”
“One of the most beautiful places, just 30 minutes away from Lisbon. In case you take the day to visit Sintra, this is a mandatory stop!”
“A lot of people go to Sintra to see the multi style/coloured Pena Palace, but I absolutely recommend Sintra National Palace. Some of the oldest and most beautiful tiles and ceilings in Portugal. Easy to go to Sintra by train, but if you want to avoid the crowds go early in the morning or later in the afternoon”
“The Quinta da Regaleira is a decorative 20th century residence that is situated in the town of Sintra. The grand house is split over five floors and has an ornate gothic façade, but the real attraction is to the rear with the enchanting gardens. The gardens of the Quinta da Regaleira were styled to represent ancient secret orders, with hidden tunnels and concealed symbolism.”
