Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, lies picturesquely amidst the thickly forested  Sintra Hills just about 30 kilometers west  of Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon. The town has so much to offer, qua history, architecture and nature. Come, visit and enjoy Sintra. We did!

  1. Just spent 4 days there in November. Quinta da Regaleira was my favourite, by far. I also opted to walk to Monserrate, and the surrounding park spaces are amazing. Solid post!
