Great value for money!

Skipping the line really helped save time, and let me tell you, the palace was even more gorgeous than I thought! Totally worth every penny. The views were breathtaking, and knowing the history behind it all made it even better. Going in the morning was genius —so quiet and serene without all the crowds. Definitely book it in advance and visit before or after peak hours!


Cultural gem!

The palace is a cultural gem. The mix of Manueline and Mudejar styles offers a deep dive into Portugal's rich history. It's a unique opportunity to experience the evolution of European art and architecture. I came by car and parked it down at the bottom, as it's more convenient. Just prepare, you'll have to walk a lot! Also, don't miss seeing beautiful Parques de Sintra; they are stunning!


Worth a visit!

I can highly recommend this place. It's way less crowded than the Pena Palace and a fascinating site. The palace has a rich and interesting history, and the available exposition tells a compelling story about power and the ruling class. The scenery and historical ambiance are truly irresistible!
