Do not miss Sintra and this incredible palace. Then again I am in love with Portugal as a whole so maybe I am biased. The colors, the vegetation really transport you to a different era. I want to go back. Just keep in mind there...More

The National Palace of Pena is the absolute Highlight of Sintra. The Palace is colorful and gives you a great insight into Royal, living 100 years ago.

Spent a wonderful day visiting the National Palace and Moorish Castle above Sintra. Some stiff climbs but well worth it for the tour and views.

No problem with buying tickets on the spot. You can also buy them in Sintra Train Station - no queues, and helpful ladies there.
