A Day trip to Sintra

Sintra – where do I even begin… It is a 40 minute train ride from Lisbon and is WELL worth the trip. Train tickets are super inexpensive and there are so many amazing castles to explore! It’s crazy to think that people actually used to live in these places!

I didn’t know much about Sintra before going and I didn’t have a chance to see even half of the castles there (it was also raining and a little gloomy the whole day) but it was still 100% worth going! Make sure you bring good walking shoes because it was a hike to get up to some of these places!

The Quinta da Regaleira

Pena Palace

Cabo Da Roca:

Westmost point of Europe

And when you’re tried of exploring stop for lunch at Tascantiga. It’s the cutest little spot right in the main town area.

Thanks for stopping by!!
