Where to stay in Sintra

For quick and easy access to Sintra's array of authentic buildings and historical sites, stay in the town's World Heritage-listed center perched atop a hill. By staying in the midst of the action, you'll be within walking distance of most of the town's main sights and you'll avoid the challenging parking situation that day-trippers and those staying further outside of the city face. For a real authentic experience, check into one of the many small boutique hotels, guesthouses, or hostels tucked in among the city's winding streets and 19th-century architecture, many of which sit high on the rugged slope near the national palace in mainly residential areas.
