    Stunning place. Go at night. Secret: go via the hiking trail and get access after closure 👻

    Good luck with finding a parking spot! Go to the "Alternative Parking" (Estacionamento Alternativo), and take a ride to the main entrance and ticket booth for the palace.

    A must visit and my personal favorite place in Sintra. This place is HUGE inside. The palace colors are jaw dropping, the gardens vast. More than worth the money.

    The gardens are absolutely fantastic. The castle is pretty ok, nothing impressive. Quinta da Regaleira (nearby) is definitely a lot better

    Try come here on a clear day or you won't be seeing much of the outside, the interior offers a rare glimpse into the life of a 19th century Royal

    Make sure to wear sneakers cause there's lots of walking & hilly! Make sure to take bus shuttle to palace ... Too long a walk!

    The park has a lot of small foot-paths. No need to spend your time on the main road: look around :)

    Entrance to the castle and park is 14eur, the palace is literally like from a fairy tale, it's one of the most gorgeous things I've seen in Portugal. It's a must in Sintra!

    Remember the view is much better after climbing! Don't take a bus. Look for black swans in a lake :)

    One of the attractions in your visit to Sintra. It's recommended to buy the combined entrance in Palacio Nacional, which includes other castles in Sintra, save money and don't wait for the queues.

    Such a beautiful place. NOT just the palace but also the village of Sintra. If you are in Lisbon for a visit don't forget to see Sintra and this palace.

    Climb from the lakes area up to the palace and enjoy the park full of exotic trees. The palace is a must-see .
