The National Palace of Sintra in the heart of the old town has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1995. Walk the stomping ground of the Portuguese monarchs and see how they lived in the middle ages. Visit the Coats of Arms room and see the most important collection of Mudéjar Azulejos (colored glazed tiles) in the world!

With its thousand-year history, you'll feel the atmosphere as soon as you skip the line and step inside the National Palace of Sintra. See the stunning architecture and the giant 33-meter high chimneys, built in the 14th century to keep the kitchens free from smoke.

And the hypnotic Mudéjar Azulejos tiles can keep you floorgazing for hours too if you're looking to really relax.

As a bonus, Sintra is generally several degrees cooler than in Lisbon, so get ready to make your escape from the heat into history!

We went at about 2pm on a Sunday afternoon. We had purchased tickets through the app to skip the line but there wasn't actually a line. All the staff were friendly and the rooms were fascinating. Be sure to look up! Not as impressive as the other palaces in the area but still worth a visit. Would recommend

Out of the three major sites found in Sintra this one would be ranked 2 nd or 3 rd. If you choose to take the bus 434 it will make the first stop at sintra palace. Do not get off at this stop. First go to Pena castle then walk to Moorish castle and then take the bus 434 to Sintra castle. There are huge line ups and you really want to see the best one first the Pena castle. The bus only goes one way in a loop.

The national palace in Sintra is a great place to spend a couple of hours. Sintra is lovely. Pena palace is also a great place. All convenient for a day trip from Lisbon.

Really great. Joined the lengthy queue at the palace before realising that i should have bought a ticket first. But it wasn't a problem as i found this website and within a couple of minutes i had my mobile ticket to show the staff (just in time!)
