Enchanting Sintra

Sintra, Portugal

Jan 13, 2018

Barely forty minutes by train from the bustle of Lisbon lies Sintra, but it may as well belong to another world.

The craggy towers of the Moorish castle look down on its many palaces and fanciful fountains dot the path up to the castle. The view from its top extends far beyond the plains, to the sea beyond.

Checkered is its history and many are the splendors of its castles and palaces, its chateaus and gardens. Deservedly deemed a UNESCO world heritage site, Sintra enchants without even trying.
