Yellow church in Sintra, Portugal

Weekly Photo: Sintra Architecture

Ver página en: Español

Located just one hour by train from Lisbon, Sintra is a charming town renowned for its 19th century Romantic architecture and landscapes. Back in 1995, UNESCO declared the cultural landscape of Sintra a World Heritage Site. This hilly town has many dazzling royal retreats, mansions and castles. It’s a great place to wander around and take some photos.

Back in 2012, I was lucky to spend a full summer enjoying the beautiful Sintra architecture and nature. If you’re headed for Lisbon I highly recommend that you go to Sintra and spend a few days there. Just a warning, summer is high season and it gets super crowded specially during weekends. Still, most people stick to the basics while visiting so if you get out of the tourist trail, you can easily find some peaceful and quiet places.
