Located in the district of Lisbon, but not necessarily in the center of Lisbon, Sintra is a hidden gem that not many people know about but that everyone should consider visiting. Getting to Sintra is cheap, fast, and easy: you simply get on a train in the Rossio train station (the Sintra Line), buy your 2.5€ ticket and you are on your way there. It takes about 40 minutes to get there as the train stops at pretty much every station on the way. Do be careful with your belongings, since, as in many tourist locations, pick-pocketing tends to be an issue. When you arrive, you will get to the train station of Sintra which is right near the city center. You'll want to make your way to the Sintra Palace, which is a 20 minute walk from the train station. One of the best aspects of Sintra is its combination of beautiful traditional architecture and the nature. It is situated on the mountains of Sintra, and at the very top of the mountains you will be able to spot the fairy-tale like Sintra Palace and the Castle of the Moors.
