Pena Palace Red Arch
Sintra is a picturesque town in the municipality of Greater Lisbon. It's actually only about a 30 minute train ride from Lisbon and well worth the visit. Actually you'll need a few days...more than a few. The village of Sintra is known for its romanticist architecture, royal palaces and castles, beautiful gardens and historic estates.
