Sintra is situated in the north side of Serra of Sintra and offers numerous sights to visitors. Even the Portuguese kings had their summer residence there. You can find enchanted villas, gardens with rampant plants, fairy-tale castles in the middle of green mountain slopes. This recreational area isn't only popular for tourists but also for inhabitants of Lisbon. Long streams of cars from Lisbon are formed particularly on weekends. Hans Christian Andersen described Sintra as "the most beautiful place of Portugal".

The old town of Sintra is dominated by the Palácio Nacional de Sintra, which can be seen from far away at its gigantic conical chimneys. In the course of the centuries this popular summer residence of the kings got several rebuilding and modifications, so that today it consists of a mixture of different architectural styles. The Sala dos Brasões and Sala dos Cisnes are particularly remarkable.
Wander through the lanes of the place and have a look in the souvenir shops. Send a postcard from the beautiful tiled post-office.
