As the title says, it's really crowded and small, disappointingly nothing special. We had lunch at a cafe close to the square (can't remember) and it was expensive. You could easily miss this part of Sintra.
Warning be prepared for any weather as you stroll the historical area. It was cold and windy but mostly dry as we took in the lovely buildings along the road and clinging to the valley sides. Found a nice local bar and rounded off our...More

Hi, having just visited Sintra, I would highly recommend you hire a private guide, we used Wonder Vans and were so happy we did. Tomas lives in the area and knew the streets and how to navigate and could just drop us off at the entrance the sites.
I would be very stressed if I was driving as the streets are very narrow and many are one way. Apparently there are up to 25,000 people/day during the summer. Tomas has a special pass which allows you to purchase skip the line tickets on the day you visit, which is great.
Make sure you visit Quinta da Regeleira it’s a magical place. Hope you enjoy your Sintra trip.
