Sintra - An excellent day trip

Sintra Area

Sintra, the aristocratic hill town to the west of the city, is a Neverland of fairytale palaces, manicured floral gardens and wild woodlands.

How to go: The train to Sintra departs from Rossio station every 20 minutes and takes about 40 minutes. Sintra train station is 1.5km to the east of the historic town centre, while the Pena Palace and Moors castle are situated further away and at the top of a steep hill. Luckily there is a tourist bus (service 434) which connects the train station to the historic town and the Pena Palace. For touristic tours you also have the City Sightseeing and the Yellow Bus.
