Amazing place, the heart of Sintra! So many beautiful buildings! A lot of people, restaurants, I formation centre! Ticket return for the day is E15 and gives you hop on and hop off option, so basically no need to handle driving there!

Sintra is a small township close to Lisbon. The palace here is accessible to tourists for a entry fee. The town itself is cute with small cobbled lanes with somewhat steep climbs. Lots of souvenir shops for tourists to buy.
