Ofcourse, you can’t go to Portugal and miss out on this one. Reaching Sintra from Lisbon takes about 30 minutes. And these 30 minutes will take you to a fairyland of castles and palaces.
If time permits do go to Batalha for the Monastery. However, for those relying on public transportation this can be slightly difficult to reach.
If anyone who has been to Portugal and has something more to add, do let me know. I’d love to hear and hopefully, go again. Saudade, the feeling of longing and nostalgia is what will drive me there again!
