Family travel experience

I really enjoyed the weekend trip. My mum and I visited 3 palaces but we want to come to visit the others. If I'm not wrong, there's 7 palaces to visit in Sintra

Solo travel experience

I went back two days in a row. I loved the sites there but for me, it was Convento dos Capuchos just out of Sintra that stole my heart for the mystic atmosphere. Completely alone on a moody misty day in the woods and stone site was spiritual so glad another traveler at the hostel told me about the site.

Solo travel experience

I spent a weekend there at a really cool hostel. Quinta da regaleira gardens were magical, and both castles were worth a visit. The whole town was so pretty. Great coffee, queijada (a small cheese pastry) and cherry liqueur.
