when I take the train ride from lisbon to sintra, will the train get off at the center of the town

by 9tigers

or I need to take a local bus to get to the center of the town and how much is the bus ticket?

Re: when I take the trainat the center of the town

The station is not in the centre of Sintra.

You could walk up the hill into the town centre (perhaps 15/20 minutes? Maybe 1km), or, obviously, take a taxi, but bus 434 follows a regular (every 40 minutes?) circular route which includes the station.

You can buy your ticket on the bus. Don't know how much it is, sorry...I just observed comings and goings, I did not actually take the bus.

Re: when I take the train

No, you have to walk for around 20 minutes, so, if you want to save money, just walk; another story is Pena Palace, in this case, you should take the bus.

at the center of the town

by leics

It is more-or-less all uphill, but if you take it steady there should be no problem.

It is very nice walk up from the train station to the palace, albeit slightly uphill. I would say 1 km is about right. If you then decide to walk up to the castle, it would be a good warm up...

Travel Tips for Sintra

Green

by solopes

Green - that's the word that better describes Sintra. The steep hills topped with castles and palaces are all covered by a marvelous carpet of gardens and woods, filling the spaces among the classical buildings carefully integrated in the landscape. Circulating and parking is hard, but... who cares?

A town of old

by TinKan

Sintra is an old town with much history that goes back to the days of the moors.

There is a very big fortress on the hill above the old city of Sintra that was built by the Moors which makes for a nice backdrop. You can also hike up to the top and look down on the town from the old castle.

The old city of Sintra is worth a visit any time of year. We like to walk around the town and watch the tourist fight for parking and try to get the best deal at the market.

There is always good food to be had in town.

NATIONAL PALACE - MANUELINE HALL

by LoriPori

The MANUELINE HALL or Sala Manuelina is the "Main Hall of Royal Residence built by Manuel I at the beginning of 16th century."

King Manuel ordered the construction of the Ala Manulina (Manuel's Wing), which is to the right of the main facade and is decorated with typical Manueline windows. King Manuel also redecorated most rooms of the Palace with polychromed tiles specially made for him in Seville. These multicoloured tiles bear Islamic motifs and lend an Arab feeling to many of the rooms.
This room is definitely splendid and regal and one of my favourite rooms.

NATIONAL PALACE - BLAZONS HALL

by LoriPori

Built by King Manuel BLAZONS HALL or Sala dos Brasos, has magnificent wooden coffered domed ceilings. This room was by far the most splendid and one of my favourites. Tiles were specially made for the King in Seville. Tile Panels bear Islamic motifs and lend an Arab feeling to many of the rooms.
The sign in Blazons Hall reads:
"The ceiling in carved gilded woodwork is crowned by the Royal Coats-of-Arms and is surrounded by the Armorial bearings of seventy-two noble families. Late 17th to early 18th century panels of painted tiles depict courtly and hunting scenes."

fountain fountain

by quartinb

fountain facilities are scattered about Sintra not just for display,
but where locals fill bottles with fresh drinking water.
fonte Mourisca and Sabuga have lovely decorated entries.
They're definitely worth checking out...and for more than just a cool sip.
