24 photos of real fairytale – Sintra

Sintra Pena de Palacio

 

 Colors of Sintra

 

Do you recognize this famous colorful castle? It is Palacio da Pena in the small city of Sintra located about 30mins drive from Lisbon, Portugal. It is becoming a very famous place to visit. Claudia is Portuguese and she had visited this castle when she was young. That time it wasn’t busy at all, today you will be surrounded by crowds, but it shouldn’t put you off from visiting Sintra.

 

Location

 

Sintra Pena Palace

 

The castle stands on the top of a hill and on a clear day it can be easily seen from Lisbon. It was built in 1854, but soon after that colors of the castle faded what made it look like a gray ordinary building. By the end of 20th century, it was repainted, giving the castle beautiful colors.

 

It is a beautiful place to see and definitely worth a trip from Lisbon. We loved being there, walking around and taking photos!

Besides of the beautiful building which you can visit inside, but the real mystery is in the gardens of Quina da Regaleira.
