    Do not walk up. The walk up is much longer than you think it is on the map given the revolving roads and the uphill.

    Don't underestimate the walk from Sintra. Its rather a hike than a walk and always goes up of course

    Honestly, not so great. I would do montserrat and regaleira instead of this overcrowed palace. The gardens are ok but not crazy thought.

    The Palaces are far from Sintra's Historical Center. Instead of the walking, try buying a 434 bus ticket you can use all day long, from one place to the next one.

    Like Bavaria's Neuschwanstein, this was built by royalty in the mid-19th century to mimic a romantic fairytale castle, long after castles had lost their usefulness. Tour this colorful fantasy land.

    The inside of the palace is a typical museum with a set path. The outside and the rest of the garden is way more interesting to explore.

    Awesome to walk around the palace in the park. You can just walk on the palace for free, so you don't really NEED to buy a ticket for that.

    Take the 434 bus return ticket 5 euros on the right outside of sintra train station. Buy tickets on board. Don't even attempt to walk. 12 euro to get in. Another 3 for a bus up the hill. Pricey.

    finding a place to park is difficult so park by the lagos lakes and walk 10 min to the entrance of the palace.. then get the bus which comes every 15 min to drop u straight at the palace's doors..
