Romantic artists such as William Beckford (1787) and Lord Byron (1811) sang its unsurpassable beauty, engravers such as William Burnett (1830-1837) immortalised the most significant parts of the countryside, men of sensitivity like King Fernando II lent impulse to planned afforestation of the Serra de Sintra and helped the construction of sumptuous revivalist buildings

This palace is like the fairy tale's ones, impressing, very colourful, you can walk all around it along the external corridors of the wall... But, if you want to see the inside of it, wake up very soon and arrive the first one or you will have to wait in an endless queu. Best option (if you can): don't go at Easter time or summer. The city gets really crowed.

Sintra is a town with some peculiar constructions, many of then are small castels that are a little bit different from the medieval european castels, as the Pena Castle and the Nacional Museum, and for that reason plus the localization of the town, in a high hill near the ocean, makes it a wonderful place for visit.

Great views of Lisbon area...little pricey, but worth the walk through, and views (especially on a clear day). It's quite a bit of walking up hill, and more money for a trolley ride up the mountain. It is really incredible seeing how king's used to live.

The castle like a fairy tale . The exterior of the castle reminiscent of Disney cartoons . The walls are various colors and decorated with relief sculptures. Rooms inside the castle are interesting , and the walls in the courtyard resemble Moroccan style .
