The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Sintra
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
The Portuguese town of Sintra is made up of magnificent palaces, exotic parks and beautiful natural landscapes. The famous Cape Roca and the Sintra-Cascais National Park are within easy reach. The city is 27 kilometres from the Portuguese capital, so it is easy to get there.
Sintra has a milder climate due to the proximity of the ocean, a calmer and more peaceful atmosphere, and the abundance of historical monuments and a large flow of tourists does not seem to disturb the peaceful flow of provincial life. Since the 12th century, the city has been the summer residence of the Portuguese aristocracy. They came here to enjoy the nature and clean sea air, to think about the meaning of life and to calm their nerves.
