A perfect short stopover whilst in Portugal, Sintra is pure magic. The enchanted forests, the dilapidated castles and the funky, unique palace overlooking the whole region. IMG_20150803_132515

go site With 5 short hours in Sintra, I was left begging for more. The little town is famous for its historical 19th century architecture, including the Castle of Moors and the colourful Pena National Palace. A 10 euro tourist bus gets you a return trip to both sites, or you can opt to hike.

My favourite spot was the Moors Castle, the ancient ruins of a Muslim sanctuary built in the 8th century. What once stood as a grand structure overlooking the coast of Portugal, now remains in ruins. Strolling uphill, taking your time seeing the enchanting forests, it feels magical.

The Pena National Palace, if you do have time to see it (the hike between is well worth it on a nice day!), has some breathtaking views of Sintra and the grand multi-coloured façade will remind you of a Disney movie.

Town itself has a great atmosphere, with many cute cafe’s and patisseries. For those starving after a long day of climbing through the ruins, there is an ideal all you can eat buffet for 13 euros right next door to the tourist center!


Ultimately I would have wanted to stay overnight and walk between the two main attractions, the Palace and Castle, but the bus is a great option for those wanting to have a great day trip in Sintra. For more information, you can read about Sintra here.
