  • This park was a great to explore and grounds had so much to see. The main well in this park is very popular that you can only travel in one direction - there was quite a line when we were visiting...

  • This place is absolutely stunning- like out of a fairytale. I’ve been several times and every time I see something new and still get the same feeling of amazement. It maybe easiest to get tickets in advance because the line is long. Also, I want to point out how lovely the woman that runs the gift shop is. She was such a pleasant and positive person to speak with, and all the gifts are beautiful.
  • In my opinion, this is the best place to visit in Sintra. Wonderful rock structures, labyrinth caves, amazing plants, and a great view of the area. Be aware that there will be a long line to see the famous 'inverted tower'. Parking is pretty much impossible here, so park downtown and walk (10-15 minutes) instead.
