The town is very cute & colourful. Lots of little alleyways filled with shops and restaurants. Worth going there for lunch before or after you visit the palace/castle.

Train station makes this very accessible. A lovely winding walking path from the train station leads you to the village where you will find 434 bus to palace do Pena and tourist information. The walkway has lots of interesting sculptures and people selling craft goods...More

It is a hilly town, but well worth the time to wander around the charming shops and restaurants. Definitely worth the trip out from Lisbon.

Nice place to walk around, but a little too touristified for my liking. Lots of tourists here and its obvious that this place caters for the hordes and any originality is sidelined.

Waste of a day out. It’s not even that historic. Far better places to visit that aren’t mobbed and full of shops selling tat. Very disappointing.

A small town full of tourist shops, cafes and gorgeous streets. It’s full of people, all tourists all taking photos of the same thing, but hey! Totally worth a visit. Try the cherry liquor in the chocolate cup and visit the pastry shops.

Very nice little village to spend about an hour plus time for lunch. Nice little shops to buy gifts and a very nice Port shop . Not much to see as far as historic sites .

Sintra is really pretty and even though it's bulging with tourists it is still quite accessible. You can find a car park without too much trouble and spend a really relaxing time wandering the streets and looking at all the amazing views in every direction....More
