Very unusual castle that could have been lifted straight out the pages of a fairy tale. Sinatra is very busy, and driving through it takes time even off season. Deciding where to park is also a problem ... the main car park was full so we had to go past the main entrance; there was one more car park ...... More

Very nice views of the area, and the most interesting palace by far. The color scheme is awesome too!

This castle is pretty fantastic and definitely is set apart from all the other ones. There's a bit of a hike up to the castle itself but when you see it, you get a glimpse of the fantastic colours and architecture. Really beautiful spot, worth checking out! Such a beautiful spot and so much to see and do. The castle... More

Whilst many visit for the quirky palace - which is worth a trip - it is the park that is stunning . Wonderful old trees and ponds and very unspoilt and well kept .

Like the title says - this place is worth being in movies! The park surrounding the Palace is breathtaking and extremely well kept. One of the most amazing things is the amount of diferent plant species (even exotic) that grow there - it almost seems that the soil is sacred. The Palace itself is also amazing - the guided tour...

It is true what they say!!! It really is like a palace from a Walt Disney/Pixar movie. First of all its high up in the hill/mountain. A good walk if you like that. But its the audacity of the built that is breathtaking. Its big and bold with suggestive colour and form which draws you in and then the views... More

I highly recommend to visit this Palace and I am sure that you will enjoy every corner. The outside is so colorful, the view over Sintra is breath taking!! The rooms, the history... it's like a dream and worth waiting in line for 20 min and paying like 10 Euro.

We really liked this Palace. It was raining pretty hard when we were there but it was still very enjoyable! Make sure to check out the gardens and ponds as well. Even in the rainy it was worthwhile and had a magical feel!

We visited many castles in Portugal, but this was tops on our list for sure. Beautiful barely describes it. We were in awe of the artistic tile work everywhere you looked. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes to enjoy your exploration.

Breathtaking views and adventurous surroundings! A great experience in every way! Recommend to take a tuktuk to the top and then maybe walk back down. Drivers are helpful. 5 EUR/ pax. Bring good shoes!
