. The town of Mafra, with its imposing convent, which is just 43 kilometers away.
. Obidos, a fortified town, perhaps the most beautiful and charming you find just an hour’s drive north of Lisbon.
What to see in the Sierra of Sintra
. This region that surrounds Lisbon has as its geographical center the spectacular Sierra de Sintra, a mountainous enclave with very lush eucalyptus forests.
. Specifically, it is the Palacio da Pena, the Quinta de Regaleira, the Castillo dos Moros and the Capuchinos Convent.
. In the old town you can visit the Sintra National Palace building, built at the time of the Muslim occupation, and which in 1147 passed into the hands of the first king of Portugal.
Its importance is found in that it is the only one preserved in Portugal from that time, although the building that you can now visit is from the beginning of the 15th century, and in which the elements of Manueline architecture and Mudejar tiles stand out.
Pena Palace of Sintra
. When you go to Sintra you should know that the center of your visit must be the Palacio da Pena, which was the summer residence of the last kings of Portugal, and that in its majestic enclave most seems to be taken from a story.
. This imposing palace was built in the mid-19th century and is the expression of Portuguese romanticism.
. The Palacio da Pena is currently a monument declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.
Quinta de Regaleira in Sintra
. Another corner to visit near Sintra is the Quinta de Regaleira, a mansion located between large gardens and the lush forest of the mountains, which was built in the early 20th century.
. On the road that takes you along the coast from Cascais to Sintra you will pass by the most famous beach in this area near Lisbon.
