SINTRA IS PALACES, CASTLES AND FAIRY TALES… ALL IN A BEAUTIFUL TOWN MADE US THINK WE'VE FALLEN ASLEEP AND WOKEN UP IN A STORY BOOK…

Sintra is a picturesque Portuguese village, located in the center of the hills of the Serra de Sintra. This slightly cooler climate attracted the nobility and elite of Portugal, who built exquisite palaces, extravagant residences and decorative gardens.

 

The variety of fascinating historical buildings and the beautiful landscapes have established Sintra as one of the best tourist destinations, as well as the most popular complementary trip from Lisbon. The historical center of the village, the National Palace, the Castle of the Moors and the Pena Palace is a must visit for its enchantment and its unique beauty.

In a city that has been influenced by many different far-off cultures over time, there is still a village feel in each historic neighbourhood. Prepare yourself to get lost while exploring the old neighbourhoods of Lisbon like Alfama, Graça, and Chiado, discover the many miradouros (viewpoints) offering a magnificent view of Lisbon.

 

Stroll through the Pombaline streets in the Baixa district that opens on to the Tagus in Praça do Comércio, then follow the river to discover some of the city’s most beautiful parts, like the historical area of Belém with its World Heritage monuments, such as Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Discoveries Monument) and Mosteiro dos Jerónimos.
