Sintra Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Situated not far from Lisbon, at the foot of the Serra de Sintra, topped by the ramparts of its Moorish Castle, this little town is dotted with bewitching fountains and parks... A stroll through its narrow streets bordered by aristocratic quintas (some covered with azulejos), amply demonstrates why this was the favourite seat of Portugal's kings. In the 19C, several English writers, including Lord Byron, chose to live here. Sintra is especially appealing in spring and autumn.
