Sintra

Region: Lisbon
Monuments: Palacio Nationale - Palacio de Pena

Set in the Sintra hills, which rise up from the coast west of Lisbon, amongst forests and ravines, this charming town, a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995, was the favored summer retreat for the kings of Portugal. Their splendid palaces, now open to the public witness these times.

At the heart of the old town is the Palacio Nationale, built in the early 16th century. Set in parkland outside town, the spectacular 19th century Palacio de Pena has been preserved as a museum since 1910 when the country became a republic. Both are open to the public and well worth a visit.
