We went to Sintra from Lisbon... Hoping to see and experience and explore...
This place is filled with discount deals to visit places and more places... Portugal survives on entrance fees and sintra is a ripe example of it...
You pay and you pay more and nothing is to write home about.
Massive lines and wait for hours...
Very disappointed.
Cannot say don't go, but it's not an experience worth cherishing...

It's got a multitude of facades, influences and the colors used seemed to be something out of a Disney Palace. Really quite inventive. It's crowded, get there early. I wish I had been able to explore the grounds which seemed great for hiking. The village down below was nice, tipical of Europe. I liked it.

Daytrip : first go to see the Quinta and in the afternoon the palace and his park. Nice stroll up the hill, see the palace and the the park. Truly fascinating trip !

We were very lucky to be on a private tour with Tomas from Wonder Vans, he dropped us off at the alternate entrance which was great as it wasn’t crowded and our walk through the grounds was less busy. Sintra can get crazy busy and we were very lucky that Tomas lives in the area and knew where to drive and park.
The grounds are lovely and extensive so leave time to explore. We didn’t pay to enter the palace as Tomas advised renovations were happening and some rooms were closed off. There’s plenty to see outside and balconies to walk around and get great scenic photos.

Be prepared to stand in line for tickets if you haven’t bought them online in advance. You have to have a ticket to get in to the park. The castle is beautiful. It feels like walking in a fairytale. We were here April 4 and it was crowded with people. I don’t know how it will be in the high season.
Nice view over Sintra and Lisbon.
We took the train (30 min) from Lisbon. We paid €10 for two persons, round trip. It’s a pretty long walk from downtown Sintra to the castle but a beautiful walk-in the mountain. Have good shoes and water.
