The Palácio Nacional at Sintra
If you have time, a day trip to Sintra, up in the mountains, is well worth the effort.
When you drive along the twisting road into the city's valley, the Palácio Nacional's twin-chimneys immediately draw your attention.Do visit the castle's interior. In the huge kitchen you can look up the inside of the chimneys. The rooms are splendid, all furniture is clearly labeled, giving you an idea where they came from and how a room was arranged. I especially like the romantic small inner courtyard.

Address: 20 miles northwest of Lisbon
othercontact: No photography allowed inside!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
