Very beautiful destination, but uphill climb is not for the weary. It was so crowded (on a monday) that we did not go inside. We did get into the small chapel. It was still worth the trek.

The Palace was extraordinary with beautiful centuries old tiles. Could not get enough of the park and the grounds. Sintra is a must see for visitors to Portugal.

Went to Pena Palace with an infant/baby. Some tips: - Stroller is possible here but I wouldn't recommend it. Lots of steep slopes. Also the palace is narrow with two floors. It was also very busy so you're shoulder to shoulder. Would be annoying with...More

Love all the details in the palace. A UNESCO world heritage. Cost 14 euro to visit during peak season, which covers the garden and stateroom visits. If you are travelling from Lisbon, check out Sintra Greencard (by CP railway) that costs 31euro which includes rail...More

This castle is beautiful. It was well worth the trip. We had to park at the lower visitors area and were told it was a nice 30 minute walk. Only if you regularly run marathons. It was a strenuous 45-60 minute walk. But as I...More

Visited both the Palace and Castle, thoroughly enjoyed both. If driving the best parking option is at the entrance of the lakes (pop this in your GPS and it will get you close to both entrances - 38º 47’ 16.45” N 9º 23’ 15.35” W)....More

I would have to agree with the previous post; if you've been to lots of palace's then you may be able to skip this one albeit they are all different in internal design and art. 1 Day in Sintra is a long time and much can... More

There's a ticket booth outside Pena Palace just for that site so you can buy a palace ticket there.

We bought ours online, with Moorish Castle as well, so an additional discount (when you buy more than 1 place entry ticket), it was like €10.38 for Pena.
