This unique palace occupies the highest mountain outside of Sintra. The fantastic imaginative design is painted in pastel colors and covered in thousands of beautifully painted tiles. There are various terraces and walkways around the palace, plus a tour of the inside. Most of the...More

We decided to take a trip out to Sintra and the Pena Palace from our holiday in Lisbon. We decided to take the Tuk-Tuk option and paid for transportation up to the Palace this way (as opposed to a bus or taxi) this gave us...More

Maybe it is less crowded on other days, but when we went in late May it was shoulder to shoulder in every room of the palace. We were packed in so tightly it made us feel claustrophobic. We just shuffled from room to room with...More

Really well preserved and presented, but also very popular and very busy. We booked tickets online to avoid queuing. The grounds are stunning and the high cross was worth the walk to the highest point in the Sera. Everything was well sign-posts and choreographed -...More

Getting the train from Lisbon to Sintra is particularly easy and straight forward. Once you have arrived in Sintra you can hop on the loop bus but we thought it would be fun to take a Tuk Tuk. It was €7.50 each for two people...More

The castle and the park are in of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. It is not the same to see the castle in a postcard as to observe it through your eyes in real time at all. One must be there. The...More

The palace offers good views of its surroundings and its grounds are massive! Pretty palace and it’s rich in history. I took a train from Sintra on my own but I think it’s better appreciate if you had one, or a guidebook or some sort....More

A must see if you are in the area. Nice and green place, filled with extremely large amount of history, topped off with one of the most romantic castles in Europe.

Unlike most trips, during our visit to Sintra, unfortunately we could not get ahead of the crowds as we started late from Lisbon itself. Even then, we managed to reach this palace around 1230pm (which is absolute peak time here). We had pre-booked the 3€...More

I was a traveler, and I found out enjoying walking around the palace. If you going from far and has spent lots of money to go there then visit it and enjoy it what ever you can at the palace. It will be worth your while.
