National Palace Visit

In March, we will be in Sintra on a Wednesday. Our guide book mentions the National Palace of Sintra is closed on Wednesday, but not the Pena Palace. The palace website does not mention any closing days, only the hours. Anyone have information.

Thank you. I had viewed that site first, but cannot locate any mention of days closed, even holidays. Is it possible the palace is open 365 days a year? Two different travel guides show closed on Wednesdays but I would like to confirm to plan our visit accordingly.

No, it's open all year around. Maybe you find this link handy: cm-sintra.pt/Anexo/…20hours.pdf

Those guides are using dated information, from the time when those monuments where not managed by Parques de Sintra.
