We went here as part of a tour. It's such a romantic beautiful palace, built as a summer home for Portuguese royalty. It's well worth a visit, but be aware there are a lot of steps, so it's not accessible if you have mobility issues.

A must visit in Sintra. A very well preserved and maintained palace. Worth to pay the admission to go inside the palace. Suggest having a drink at the terrace to have a wonderful view and good souvenirs for sales at their shop.
