The inside story

The National Palace of Sintra also known as Town Palace is located right in the heart of Sintra being part of its cultural landscape. It was classified World Heritage by UNESCO in 1995.

The history of this impressive palace began during the Muslim occupation of the Iberian Peninsula. It was used by the Portuguese royal family until practically the end of the monarchy, from the early 15th-century through to the late 19th-century.

The palace has characteristics of Gothic, Manueline, Renaissance and Romantic architecture and is the best-preserved medieval royal residence in Portugal. It has the largest collection of Mudéjar tiles in the country. The most eye-catching part of the palace are the colossal chimneys which can be seen from kilometers away.

Of all the palaces built by the Portuguese monarchs throughout the Middle Ages, the National Palace of Sintra is the only one that has survived to the present day virtually intact.

Definitely, this stunning palace is a mandatory stop if you’re visiting Sintra.
