We have seen a lot of palaces. This one is different! First, the drive up to the castle is picturesque filled with greenery. Originally a monastery, converted to a Summer Palace and today a National Museum, it has an electic style of architecture and colors. If you don't want to climb up to the Palace, pay for the tram.

The walk up to the palace is picturesque, along a winding road through the forest. There is an observation point before you get there to see the palace from a distance with great photo opportunities. Get your selfie stick ready.

I suppose if you think of it in terms of human ambition it boggles the mind a bit that anyone would put the effort needed into building the crazy palace in the sky. You need to visit if you're in Sintra. I walked through the amazing Park up to the Moorish Castle and then up to Pena. It's a strenuous... More

This place is stunning and we had a great tour which gave us an insight into its history. There is a restaurant there which had wifi. Great views in all directions.

This is definitely the castle to see if you are visiting Sintra! The pictures don't even do it justice. The views, colors, and history is incredible. Lots walking when visiting but so worth it!

This was a very beautiful attraction and we were not disappointed. Not much to say other than go check out it and you will enjoy seeing it up close. Pay the 3 euro to take the bus to the top and back if you don't like hiking.

A very magical palace. The architecture is a combination of neo Gothic, Manueline, Neo Islamic and Neo Renaissance. This combination resulted in a very enchanting and surreal structure that is quite mesmerizing. Reminiscent of Dali's museum in Figueres, Spain Quite a hike up to this palace. Understandable that this is one of Portugal.s national treasure and a world UNESCO site.
