Sintra is a mythical, enchanting, and verdant town settled in the foothills of the Sintra Mountains in Portugal. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is not far from Portugal’s capital of Lisbon and makes for a memorable day trip. However, you will need much more than a day to visit all the glorious sight attractions such as; the Palácio da Pena, Quinta da Regaleira, and Convento dos Capuchos. The town also boasts a pageant of parks and resorts such as the Pena Park, Vila Sassetti and Praia da Adraga.

The natural mountainous terrain is covered with beautiful forests intermingled with extravagant residences and decorative gardens. For eons, Sintra has been a sanctuary for the aristocratic and royal with their excellent villas and palaces. Its moderate climate favors extravagant residences and decorative and copious gardens.
