A true site alone! Located next to Pena Palace this beautiful garden is packed with life! So many exquisite faunas were brought from North America, Asia, and New Zealand into this park. You can truly get lost in nature here.
Pena Palace is one of Sinatra's biggest tourist attractions (and rightly so). This colorful, romantic palace was designed by the Prussian architect Baron Ludwig von Eshwege and Portuguese architect Possidónio da Silva but the chapel of our lady of Pena attached to the palace originally dates back to the 12th century. You can easily spend a few hours here wandering through the Lush forestry that surrounds the palace before heading inside to be amazed yet again by the outstanding decor and then finish your day at the small outdoor cafe overlooking the hilly forests.
This is the highest point on the Serra mountain at 540 meters, with a unique looking cross created in the early 16th century. Up here you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Serra mountain, the lush forestry surrounding you, and even spot some of the palaces in the distance.
This palace was designed by the British architect James Knowles Junior in the 19th century. The gardens are something of wonder too, with possibly over 3000 exotic species, collected from all parts of the world in it.
One of the oldest castles in Sintra, with evidence of it, used in the 9th century, during the Moorish occupation. Within the castle, you not only get to see amazing views of the town and other castles through the battlements but you can also explore the defensive towers around the castle.
This palace was built in the 20th century and is located in the historic centre. The architecture here is uniquely beautiful with a very gothic feel to it. Home to the famous initiation well, the fact that Quinta da Regaleira is surrounded by woods, caves, lakes, and gardens adds to the appeal of the palace.
This was a functioning royal palace until the early 1900s. Originally built under Moorish rule for sultans, the palace has been remodeled and altered. The palace at a glance looks like something out of a fairytale as it sits next to a river surrounded by lush green forestry.
Queluz National Palace is an 18th-century palace with exuberant architecture. This palace is located a bit further out than the other palaces (22km south) but still worth a visit as it’s outstanding architecture, monuments and gardens can’t be fully grasped without visiting.
