Sintra, May 1 Holiday Closures?

I will be traveling to Portugal, arriving May 1 in Lisbon. I am planning to renting a car at the airport and go to Sintra for the first few day. On one site I read that May 1 is a National Holiday. Will the Palaces and other sites be open on that day? Thank you.

Hi!

The nacional palaces of Sintra, Pena and Queluz will be closed on May 1.

However, the Mourish Castel (Castelo dos Mouros); the Pena’s park; Monserrate palace and his park; Quinta da Regaleira palace and Capuchos convent will be opened.

Anyway, Sintra is a must. You should visit it.

Have a nice trip!

Thank you for your help. I have decided to stay 2 nights in Sintra so I will be able to see everything.
