A short drive from Lisbon, Sintra is a place one should visit if time allows. The trip will take half to one day, depending on how much of Sintra you want to see. I choose to pass by on my way to Porto and I only visited the Pena national palace, which was supposed to be the top of the attractions in Sintra. From the quick glimpse I got from the rest of the village, there are many more interesting things to see. That palace was a magical place. Follow me.
ps. This time I was more in front of the camera than I was behind. What a nice change!
