About National Palace Of Sintra, Sintra

There is no dearth of royal castles and palaces in Portugal. But 15th century National Palace at Sintra is probably the best maintained palace in the country not to mention the most visited palace in all of Portugal. Visitors will find the palace grand both in size and beauty.

The architectural beauty of the National Palace can be attributed to the eclectic designs chosen to adorn it. Visitors can find a mixture of Gothic, Moorish and Manueline styles throughout the palace. It remained well preserved by its royal residents and regular renovations and redesigns were added every few years.

Each room of the National Palace has a unique design and environment. The Royal Bedchambers still exude the magnificence and charm of days gone by. The Pegas Room, Pagoda Room and the Coat of Arms Room are some of the most beautiful sections of the Palace.

The Swan’s Hall: The largest room of the National Palace, the Swan’s Hall was used by the royal family for special occasions and continues to be used to host official receptions of the State.

King Joao’s Central Patio is a gorgeous work of art. Decorated in Arabic architecture, the Central Patio has its own water grotto and is covered with ornately decorated tiles depicting religious themes.

The two large chimneys of the estate’s kitchen are now a marked feature of the Sintra skyline. The Pegas room has an amusing history behind it. The Queen caught King Joao kissing a lady-in-waiting in that very room. To quell notorious gossip, the King had magpies (Pegas) painted over the entire room and gave the court something else to talk about.

National Palace Of Sintra, Sintra Reviews

  • Amazing architecture and history in this palace. A mixture of European and Moorish influence on the structure. Patterns and colors of tiles were still retained. The rooms retained a certain personality. A must visit

  • The National Palace is majestic, from the outside and the inside. The entrance ticket is a bit expensive, but it’s worth a visit. The palace is kind of a museum, and the furniture collection is remarkable. Obviously, the most original features in this palace are the two massive white chimneys in the kitchen. We haven’t seen something like that before (and yet we had a chef in the group!)

  • Even if not going inside, outside is a very nice view to take some good photos. It is right in the center and it is very popular. Inside it looked amazing and the architecture was just gorgeous, especially the cellings. Outside you have some good views to the city and it looks beautiful during Christmas time. It is a very good place to bring your family and your friends to spend a nice afternoon with a lot of amazing things to see. I recommend to anyone who is visiting Sintra and it still doesn't know where to start. There is a lot of tourist exploration here tough.

  • Amazing monument with a lot of antique collection. Tickets are a bit expensive but depends on your interest. Breath taking views of the lush green countryside as the palace is situated on top of a hill. Neat and clean surroundings. Lovely and serene drive from Lisbon to Sintra. Dont miss the local delicasies and drinks served in the numerous street side restaurants and shacks around the place. All in all a wonderful experience with friends!👌👍

  • Lovely place, interesting architectural styles! Went in February and it wasn't very busy - we took our time with the tour and we really enjoyed it. The views of Sintra and Moorish Castle from inside the palace are wonderful. If you get the Lisboa card you will get 10% discount on the entrance ticket.
