The architectural beauty of the National Palace can be attributed to the eclectic designs chosen to adorn it.

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.

It is a must-see monument at the city of Sintra. This is a very old palace that belonged to an old king of Portugal around the XVI century. This palace is very beautiful and fully furnished and decorated with old elements what brings more delight to the visit. It is a fact that there are many stairs and steps to overcome during the visit, precisely, a 100 according to the front desk staff, but it definitely worth it. This palace is very unique also due to the marvelous ceiling painting at the main salon and to the design of the kitchen, a innovation for the society at that time, with a singular structure with two chimneys responsible to take out the smoke produced while cooking. These elements are similar to two white and rounded towers when seen from the outside.
I am usually less keen on palaces - too much grandeur and gilt. This is a wonderful place , with a tour route around the rooms and patios. It has an unusual feel - you can sense that the royals maybe had a good time here and enjoyed themselves ! I bought the book - which I rarely do for palaces !
Wonderful place, the colourful palace is amazing high up on the hills. Lovely little town with bus tours going regularly. Would recommend this place. Can be reached by train from Lisbon in 30 minutes.
An eclectic, weird and wonderful palace. Parts are still being restored but what we did see was interesting and colorful. Highly recommended are the garden areas surrounding the castle, which are well kept and beautiful. Worth the walk and time to explore.
Charming little eatery with an amazing menu and a great staff. I highly recommend the coriander broth soup, fried prawns, octopus tempura, you know what... just try everything.
