When staying in Lisbon, a great day trip is to Sintra to see the palace. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and be ready for some stairs and inclines. Wonder, colorful palace in the center of this little town.

Another spectacular building in Sintra town. The eye is imediately drawn to the bottle shaped towers on top of the building. Such an odd sight, building is very impressive sight and very picturesque.

The Palace was quite interesting; great views but sparsely furnished and minimal gardens. The mix of Gothic & Baroque architecture and use of glazed ceramic tiles in many styles and formats were unique. We especially enjoyed the "Swan and Chinese" rooms. Terrific gift shops throughout...More
