“To travel is to live” Hans Christen Andersen
Sintra’s numerous palaces are so varied that for the majority of our clients it is a difficult task to plan the excursion. The Town offers something for almost every taste, beginning with the romantic Pena Palace; the medieval Sintra Palace; the mystic Quinta da Regaleira; the high society former summer palace of Monserrate; the “Portuguese Versailles” palace in Queluz; the hidden Capuchos Convent and the imposing Moorish Castle. Nearby the splendorous Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon and the majestic Convent of Mafra complete the list of places that cannot be missed.
It is also recommended to stroll the narrow cobblestone streets and absorb the atmosphere of Sintra Old town’s historical buildings where souvenir shops, boutiques, restaurants and charming cafés are located.
The peak season for a holiday in Sintra is from April to September, with August having more visitors than any other month.
