    There is a car that can take you around the park. Same as the mini bus drop off point for castle entrance on top. Car comes every 25mins, worthwhile as the park area is too big unless you have time

    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.
