  • Without a doubt the highlight of my trip to Portugal. If you’re planning on visiting, make sure to arrive early in the morning because there is just so much to see. Absolutely stunning and I’m honestly surprised that I hadn’t heard of it before. Lots of amazing underground passageways and corridors that connect one point to another; definitely an ideal place to come with children. I visited at a very peak time, but the sheer size of the place ensured that it wasn’t crowded. It seems endless, and even though I spent hours here, it still didn’t feel like enough because each and every structure needs time to appreciate. Highly recommended!!!
  • Fantastic Quinta. Inside there are many attractive spots. The stroll around this fantasy park will take at least 2 hours, but it is worth it. One will see the castle itself, two fantastic wells, sculptures and exotic plants. We enjoyed the walk but were very tired. There's no parking near Quinta, park the car in the town and walk about 700 m.
  • One of the best places I have seen so far. This castle and park are so unique, that it is definitely worth paying a visit. The park is so incredibly built, that you can go all the way under the ground in the numerous cave passages from one grot to another. It's a mystical experience! Kids would love it. The castle also is a masterpiece of architecture, loved the interior decoration. It's very unique! Incredible experience
  • Another beautiful place in Sintra. Some 15min walking from the train station,everything is marked so you won't get lost. Entrance is 10euros. They have a beautiful garden and a palace. At the exit there's cute restaurant and they are really nice there.
  • Definitely a highlight of our trip to Portugal..! This place is absolutely beautiful, words don't do it justice. Make sure you don't miss the initiation well used by the Freemasons and Knights Templar, it is quite spooky, and leads to a series of interesting caves. If you're visiting, I highly reccomend checking out the surrounding area of Sintra, it is really beautiful, just a little difficult to navigate! Guided tours around the area here are great (they save you the stress of navigating some very windy and narrow streets, and you learn so much more about the history of the place), highly recommend Keep It Local tours if you're thinking of visiting Sintra!
