Fairy Palace against sunset sky /  Panorama of Palace in Sintra,

On arrival at Sintra, your gaze is immediately caught by the magnificent palace that presides over the town like a structure from an old fairytale. From afar, the soft, pastel colours of the castle walls stand out vividly against a backdrop of lush green, enticing you closer to explore to this marvellous feat of Romantic architecture.

A town of past kings, Sintra is a combination of quaint old villas and winding cobbled streets, all topped off with a tranquil, calming atmosphere. The proud holder of UNESCO World Heritage Site status, the town is ideal as a day trip excursion from nearby Lisbon or a longer stay if you have more time to play with.
