Was a rainy day so enjoyment of the gardens was a little spoilt. Get the local tourist bus there and back, from central Sintra. The Palace was undergoing much renovation but was pretty impressive. Well maintained and signposted gardens

It was so worth the walk from the bustle of Sintra central and then the challenging climb through beautiful gardens to the top. Entrance fee was modest for such a well preserved place in such a superb setting. We definitely deserved a cold beer after...More
