This is the second time I've been to the Palacio and the first time for my wife and son. A must see in Portugal. They even have a snack shop in the palace where you can sit at the top of the castle and enjoy some refreshments.

We went to this trip and loved it. Such a nice architecture and lovely garden. Our guide "Guss" also stopped Cascais beach and Western most point. Guss is so friendly and entertaining that made our trip very memorable.

Sintra is a destination not to be missed when visiting Portugal. Sintra can be reached easily by train even from the Oriente Station now. In about 40 minutes the train from Lisbon arrives in this beautiful small city. If visiting just for one day, I would take a taxi from the train station up to the Palace and buy my... More

Colorful castle. Beautiful especially when there is sunshine. You may either climb up from the town center or take the 434 bus. Plan at least 1.5 hours for the visit as there are a lot to see walking around.

We traveled from Lisbon to Sintra on the "green line" for 5e return - which we thought was very good value, although don't expect modern clean and well furnished trains; they were punctual and we could get a seat. We caught the 434 bus from outside the station which takes you up to the Castle of the Moors and then... More

Such beautiful grounds. Loved the steep walk up. The castle was great outside and in. Loved how the wind and temperature changed as you walk around the castle.

This is unmissable! It has been beautifully repainted recently on the outside so that in the warm February sunshine against a blue sky, the palace almost seemed to glow. We used the 434 bus from Sintra to get there, and sadly didn't have time to visit the rest of the park, but the palace was so worth the trip, the... More

It is quite expensive ticket. Nothing to do much at the palace. Thereafter, I walk to the lake, it was pretty good environment. I would recommend you walk to the lake after visit the palace. There is a bus stop for bus no.434 at the lake exit so you don't need to worry about the transport.
