Holidays to Sintra
With its fairy-tale palaces, gorgeous views, proximity to Portugal's capital, plus easy access to stunning Atlantic beaches, it's no wonder that Sintra attracts the crowds. So incredible is the architecture that the whole place has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Through its history it has inspired poets such as Lord Byron, and it's easy to see why. A popular day trip from Lisbon, a longer stay will do it justice.
Praia da Adraga
Often voted one of Portugal's loveliest beaches, this cove 13kms away is tucked into mountains. Parking can be tricky.
Praia das Macas
You can travel to this popular beach by tram from Sintra. Wide and sandy, it has lots of facilities.
National Palace of Sintra
Admire the twin cone towers, fabulous painted ceilings and breathe in the 1000 year old history of this gorgeous palace.
Monserrate park and palace
Visitors come as much for the eclectic 19th Century style of the mansion as for the lovely botanical garden setting.
Perched atop a hill with its yellow and pink turrets, Pena Palace is as close to fairyland as you get outside Disney.
Quinta da Regaleira
Another stunning mansion. Visitors love the quirky gardens, the highlight being the plunging initiation well.
Wander the streets and you'll find plenty of fabulous eateries, serving anything from relaxed tapas to fine dining.
No visit to Sintra will be complete without a bakery visit to sample local almond pastries queijdadas and travesseiros.
Visit Portugal's answer to Vegas at this night spot offering restaurants, gambling, and night time musical shows.
This area is famous for this traditional soulful Portuguese folk music sung while you eat. Go local or head to Lisbon.
