Don't read about this. Just go and explore...you're going to lose yourself for a few hours wondering around. You'll be amazed at what you find. Parking, traffic and just plain driving is ridiculous in Sintra. Try to take public transportation from Lisbon and buy tickets...More

Walked here from the train station, an easy walk except for the last bit. As it was a holiday weekend, there was a line for tickets which moved once they had a few more ticket sellers. So many different plants, structures, caves, stairs, paths, carvings,...More
