Cultural Landscape of Sintra
Day Trippers: Once in the hilltops of Sintra, take a tour of the mystical Pena National Palace. Built in the 19th century for the King of Portugal, the architecture is extravagant and the grounds are filled with exotic plants and flowers.
Another site, Moorish Castle, is a fortress amid the cliffs and The Tower Homage provides views over Sintra stretching all the way to the Atlantic.
A great way to see Lisbon from every angle is on Tram 28. For a few euros, hop aboard and enjoy the scenic views of the city.
Lisbon's Belem Tower is one of the most photographed landmarks in the city and is a beauty to see up close and personal. The iconic tower is open to visitors year-round and does not charge admission.
The hotel is uniquely designed and a close walk to the sea. The Rossio train station is nearby and the location allows you to get lost in the hilly streets of Lisbon.
