** National Palace of Sintra ** Grab these tickets and skip the queues outside The Palace of Sintra so you can explore over 1,000 years of Portuguese history. The palace is immediately discernible by its two conical chimneys - a characteristic trait of Sintra itself. With its richly decorated rooms, galleries and corridors, it was a favorite for a succession of Portuguese royal families and their retinues, right until the end of the monarchy in 1910. Spend your time marveling at how the natural landscape was used to merge Manueline, Gothic and Mudejar designs. The windows with surmounted arches and walls covered in glazed tiles of geometric patterns are a testament to medieval brushwork and craftsmanship. ** Monserrate Palace & Park ** You don’t need to be a historian or an architectural aficionado to know that Monserrate Palace is a work of art. A summer residence bearing witness to the eclectic tastes of a bygone era with the main halls adorned with alabaster statues and decorative symbols. Ornate details never giving the impression of being over the top, reflecting Indian and Moorish influences, that come together to birth beautiful design. On entry, you’ll receive a map that will allow you to truly get into the skin of the place. The best way to go about your tour would be to start by exploring the garden, through the scenic path. Along this winding path, you will see contrasting sceneries with waterfalls, ruined chapels, age-old araucarias, and palm trees. Home to 3,000 exotic species and separated by geographical areas, the garden offers a lens into the diverse origins of plants in the world.
