where to park in Sintra?

by piglet44

I know the best way to do sintra is by train but we are coming by car because we are continuing up the coast to Peniche. Is there any way we can park at the entrance to Sintra and do the 434 bus trip and then return to the car ?

Or is there another solution I haven't thought of yet?

don't have time to do a day trip and then return to Lisbon ,rent a car and continue.Help!

you can park your car in the new part of sintra and then walk to the old part.
it´s only a 5 minute walk.
if i remember right then there is parking space by the train station.

i have never driven to sintra myself as i don´t have a drivers license, but i have been there with tour busses as a guide and they have a drop off point right by the entrance to the old part of town and then while we are there they go and park in the new part of sintra and if they can park there then there should be no problem for your small car i would say.

Hello,

There are also parking places all along the road from the train station to the old town.

If you're visiting a on a weekday, or early in the morning, you can find a place easily.

lots to see, do and eat!!

by dogwoman

walk or hire a car/taxi and go to the Pena National Palace.(you can,when the weather is good, get a horse drawn carriage up there,but it's tough on the horses,is expensive and very touristy!) Beautiful Palace though.
Shopping is great, lots of amazing ceramics,check out the antique shops for authentic old tiles.
Excellent restaurants,but explore side streets, often cheaper prices.
It is a bit touristy though, most people speak English, which I found disappointing as I wanted to try out my limited Portuguese.
Go to the Toy Museum too,very nostalgic and well set out. Take an umbrella in Spring as it tends to have it's own micro-weather system!!
Lovely, lovely place, one of my favourites.
Also, if you want free parking and don't mind a bit of a steep walk, park in the side streets.

Visit a unique place,The Capuchos Convent.

by dogwoman

Half way up to the Moorish castles in Sintra,there is a turning on the right which is sign posted to Capuchos Convent. Go along this long,leafy and very twisty road and you will come to this incredible monastry that has been empty for many years and recently restored. Get a guided tour, well worth it,I don't usually like tours, but found this one very informative and interesting,and the guy didn't go on and on!!The convent is made into the rock,and you get a real feeling of the hardships the eight monks who lived there, had to endure.

BEDCHAMBER OF KING SEBASTIAN

by LoriPori

A sign in the BEDCHAMBER OF KING SEBASTIANor Quarto de D. Sebastiao reads:

"Called the Gold Chamber at the beginning of the 15th century, due to decoration which has since disappeared. It was used as a bedchamber by King Sebastian at the end of the 16th century. The tile wall covering consisting of raised vine leaves dating from the beginning of the 16th century, is quite unique."

Queijadas

by gmg61

Queijadas are egg custard tartlets, and are among my preferred cakes in a country, Portugal, where cakes are very good.
I tried very good ones in Sintra, Casa das Queijadas, just opposite the railway station.
It's not only a place where you can get good cakes, but also a nice old style bar owned by a pretty aged woman
