This is a lovely place to visit. We were unaware of the total history of Portugal and had expected the royal palace to be much older. Glad it wasn't because we got a great look at what passed for cutting edge in the 19th century. Fascinating stuff. There are self guided tours available - we hired a guide. Glad we did because we find that you get a lot more out of the visit. Finding the place was easy and parking convenient. Costs were minimal.
It is "the most striking building in Sintra, with two towering spires visible in every corner of the town. The biggest "Swan hall" is beautifully decorated, with 27 swans in different poses depicted on the ceiling. Admission ticket: Adults 10 euro 6-17 years old and over 65 years old 8.5 Euro
