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.

Yes one can just wander around here as we did and look at the older style houses and streets as well as the inevitable shopping as one does

Sintra is lovely to explore but totally geared to tourists so don’t expect any authentic small town experience. Worth exploring but beyond a lovely ambiance it’s a little over hyped.
