    Train from Lisbon to Sintra

    Sintra train station

    The Linha de Sintra is the name applied by CP- Portuguese Trains to the services run by its UGSL division from Lisbon to Sintra, 28km away to the north-west

    The Sintra Line provides an attractive excursion from Lisbon for a number of reasons:
    • Its destination is the royal town of Sintra, with its two palaces, one in the town and the other, with a Moorish castle, perched high on a hilltop above.
    • It is a paragon of efficient operation and tight timetabling of frequent trains which run for virtually 24 hours a day.
    • It is cheap; depending on your starting point around 290 escudos (¸0.90) single.

    The through service normally runs from central Lisbon's Rossio station to Sintra, every 15 minutes, seven days a week. Services run virtually all day and night; from around 0500 hours to 0200.

    Train to Sintra, from Lisbon.

    by Branco Updated Aug 3, 2004

    The train is a good way of going to Sintra. It's nice going on car but in Sintra we just don't have where to park. If You go by car and don’t find a place for your automobile, try near the Post Office. It's not far from the centre and is the place where there are more places to park... however, always try the train (Humphrey Bogart used to say this about Paris “We'll always have the train”… (wasn't this?)

    The best and fastest way to be in Sintra is taking the train at the Rossio main station in Lisbon. It takes about 30m to reach Sintra . It's not a very pleasent journey. But when you get there you'll see how nice it is.

    This is a picture of the train station in Sintra. You'll pass through a tunnel just before you arrive and when you exit the train, you can get tourist information right in the station, including free maps that will easily lead you to the Old Quarter.
