For those of you who like Disneyland, go ahead. For those of you who appreciate organization and dislike hoards of people and lines, don’t waste your time. Sintra has become a sell-out to tourists and without limiting visitors, it is becoming a mess.

It's one of the two castles standing on the hills above Sintra and definitely the one you should visit. Its colorful walls are magnificent and "play" with the sunlight especially if you visit before sunset. The view from above is breathtaking and after visiting the...More

No problem with buying tickets on the spot. You can also buy them in Sintra Train Station - no queues, and helpful ladies there.
