Without a doubt the highlight of my trip to Portugal. If you’re planning on visiting, make sure to arrive early in the morning because there is just so much to see. Absolutely stunning and I’m honestly surprised that I hadn’t heard of it before. Lots of amazing underground passageways and corridors that connect one point to another; definitely an ideal place to come with children. I visited at a very peak time, but the sheer size of the place ensured that it wasn’t crowded. It seems endless, and even though I spent hours here, it still didn’t feel like enough because each and every structure needs time to appreciate. Highly recommended!!!
Highly recommend! This is a large palace with gardens, underground passages, a chapel, and many scenic views of Sintra. You can spend 1-2 hours here depending on how slowly you walk around. Costs about 10 euros per person. The palace, chapel, and wells were the best parts to see. Be advised - This place has many hills to climb up and down if you wish to see everything. Don't go if there is bad weather - Everything is outdoors beside the palace and underground passages.
