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

  • 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.

  • Definitely worth a visit. The walk in the woods up to the castle and palace is great. Not too far but a bit steep at times. Wear some good shoes/trainers! Also be mindful of the castle and palace opening times. We went around sunset and everything was closed by the time we got uo. Views were incredible though.

  • 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.

  • Beautiful grounds and gardens in this very interesting castle. Could easily spend a whole day there. Hold onto your hat if you do the wall walk (& it's a must do) or risk losing it in the wind.

  • Nice palace to visit. It's in the historic city centre of Sintra. So compared to the other palaces and castles no need to climb up hill. Admission in 9 EUR for adults. It's quite reasonable. You see a palace in good condition.
