pena palace sintra
The facade is immediately striking and unique from other European castles. Like an artist’s palette raging with colour. Bright hues evoke a romantic image. The interior however does not match expectation in beauty.

The huge Pena Palace is where Portuguese royalty would come to escape the summer heat. Set high on pine forested hills, every step you take higher and higher is simply breath taking.
quinta da regaleira
Having changed its name from Quinta da Torre in 1840, none of its regal elegance has diminished. Palace, house, chapel and gardens to explore.
The castle of the Moors built in the 9th century by African Moors, is strategically positioned overlooking the lush forests of the Serra de Sintra. (Sintra Mountains)
