  • Sintra is a lovely town and lovely area very close to Lisbon. We loved our day there and in the Pena Palace. This town is lovely, shame we only spent a few hours there. But we still had time to try the local pastries. A must for a day trip from Lisbon.
  • Sintra was amazing, it was one of our favorite day trips. You definitely get all your steps in! Be prepared for so many pictures. Was nice that there wasn’t a crazy amount of people there, had plenty of photos with no people as you can see. Definitely follow the map they give you, you don’t want to miss a thing!
