The Moorish fortress is a steep climb above the town, past the cottage once occupied by Hans-Christian Andersen, but offers spectacular views along the coast. A German prince built the colourful and ornate Palacio da Pena, a palace straight out of a Disney animation, with playful interiors and elaborate gardens to match the kitsch feel. A tram route from Sintra heads out to the coast and the charming Atlantic beach of Praia das Maças, enclosed by headlands, with simple fish restaurants overlooking the sand.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Sintra

Sintra has been welcoming English tourists since Lord Byron's day, but the language is not universally spoken so it's worth knowing a few basic Portuguese phrases for everyday use. The Portuguese are more conservative than their Spanish neighbours and boisterous behaviour in public is very unusual. They tend to dress smartly when dining out. Many of the local supermarkets have rotisserie machines outside, roasting frango, barbecued chicken, which is ideal as a picnic option for hillside hikes. Restaurants around Sintra offer some interesting local dishes such as sopa a alentejana, a soup with bread, a poached egg and coriander. Cabrito, roasted kid, is usually served with large amounts of rice, potatoes and salad.
