Picturesque palace, one of main attractions of Sintra. Our GPS was useless to get us there, spend over an hour driving, just to end up on blind road. Eventually end up at Sintra center's parking lot..... more »
Sintra is a lovely town and lovely area very close to Lisbon. We loved our day there and in the Pena Palace. This town is lovely, shame we only spent a few hours there. But we still had time to try the local pastries. A must for a day trip from Lisbon.
Sintra was amazing, it was one of our favorite day trips. You definitely get all your steps in! Be prepared for so many pictures. Was nice that there wasn’t a crazy amount of people there, had plenty of photos with no people as you can see. Definitely follow the map they give you, you don’t want to miss a thing!
