The most magical monument in Sintra which you definitly must visit along with Palacio da Pena. This site is known for its magical gardens and the famous forbidden well and underground tunnels.. We often call it a Disneyland for adults.

This national palace is visible from everywhere due to its characteristic chimneys. If you are tight on time theres no need to go inside, but rather enjoy the historical centre around it and the lovely views to the mountain.

Food scene

Its our top choice for our guests and always proves us right. It is Portuguese food served with a more modern twist without being an up market restaurant. We suggest trying the Octopus and if you enjoy your wine, try the local Patrão Diogo wine which is locally produced by a friend of ours and is a lovely and enjoyable wine.

This place is great because of its fabulous outdoor space, with lovely views of the national palace. It has a chilled out feeling and the food also follows the same philosophy with a good mix of fusion and portuguese food. Cocktails here are great and they often have live music early in the evenings.

Long lines for sights after 10.30am

The rush from Lisbon often arrives around 10.30/11.00 am so getting to the monuments before this helps to avoid crowds.
