I spent a part of my spring break so, in a bed & Breakfast in Sintra (Portugal) to work. The small town is about 25 km from Lisbon.
For this, that Sintra is such a small town, There are quite many attractions.
Said about Sintra, It is a magical place. This is because, that everything is green, as in the rest of the country. As I have previously been in Sintra, I have visited this time not the usual attractions in Sintra, like the Palácio national da Pena (s.u.26. links)or the Quinta of Regaleira Palace, my favorite place (s.u.26. right).
I have the Parque e Palácio de Monserrate (see below) a visit, an Arab castle with huge park system. Another fascinating place in Sintra.
There are two sweet specialties: the „Travesseiros“ (the elongated pieces) and that „Queijadas“ (round particle) – they do you have to be sure times at the pastry shop „Piriquita (Antiga Fábrica de Queijadas)“ try! But do not say, I didn't warn you, that one of them gets a sugar.
