An amazing place to visit at the top with breathtaking views- go early in the day as it inevitably gets busy and wear suitable footwear and take loads of water!

Was really nice and beautiful palace. Even my 12 year olds thought it was nice. The view is breathtaking. We had a beautiful time, but was way 2 hot the day we went 38 degrees.

Loved Sintra and enjoyed seeing the Palace. We picked up a tuktuk tour and he was great. Sintra is lush and just as they describe "a fairytale". Worth the train from Lisbon. Easy ride.

We took a day-trip from Lisbon by train and walked to the palace. Lovely hike and beautiful old pathways full of greenery. The palace is so lovely, like out of a fairytale. It offers great views and some much needed wind in the summer heat!...More

This is is an amazing palace at the top of a peak. The views are spectacular and the palace itself is quite nice. An interesting aspect is that the furnishings remain from the last inhabited period so give a lived in feel to the place....More

Get there early to avoid peak hour... do the long wAlk to the palace the gardens are amazing. It is a must see... very unique and such a historic palace.

Huge crowd, a lot of queuing and waiting. The rooms inside are small and the tourist flow has not been mastered.

At the entrance to Pena Palace, you can take a shuttle bus (for another 3 euros, but it wasn't there, so it was a moot point). So we walked up a steep uphill grade with uneven cobbles. Even if you are able to take the...More

This is the sort of place where words aren't enough to describe the place. It like a fantasy become reality. Towers and turrets colours and tiles everywhere! Well worth visiting, there are extensive grounds but we didn't have time to explore.

Visiting the Pena palace was one of my best travel experiences so far! From the moment you see it you have the feeling of getting into a fairy tale world full of colors... Its not only the unique architecture or the place that gives you...More

How much time do you recommended for visiting the actual Palace of Pena, and also the Park? I Initially thought 2 hours, but perhaps that is too short a visit?

When you arrive at castle of the moors there is a ticket office or a machine outside, we used the machine outside and you pay by card. Very straight forward and fast
I will be visiting Sintra and will be staying approximately 30 in Lisbon (by taxi). Can anyone please tell me if taking a taxi is a good idea? Also, any detailed information about the best way to navigate to Pena place park, Castle of the Moors and Quinta da Regaleira. Any tips are welcome. THANKS!

One more point, if you buy tickets, go to the Tourist office as you can buy combined tickets at a reduced price and then do not have to wait in line at the Palaces. Quinta de La Regaleira is privately owned, so you can only... More
