Next morning I woke up and realized that the weather was quite fair. Therefore, I decided to go strightaway from the Passport hostel to Sintra, a small town situated 27 kilometres from Lisbon. Trains to Sintra depart from Lisbon's Rossio station.
Sintra is most frequently visited by the so called day trippers, who arrive from Lisbon for a couple of hours. I've got to admit I was one of them, I came by train (a ticket for 2 Euro) at about 12 am and at 4pm I already got on bus to Cabo de Roca. Even if you have only a little time, Sintra is definitely worth visiting.
Sintra is located to the northwest of Lisbon and is surrounded by gorges. Some people say that the city is clearly divided into three villages but frankly, it wasn't so it wasn't so apparent to me. Overall, the city is really beautiful and with full responsibility I may agree with an old Spanish saying: “To see the whole world and not to see Sintra means seeing nothing”.
Sintra is famous mainly for its Old Town. It's a charming place, ideal for the fans of old buildings and pleasant streets. The oldest buildings date back to the 8th an 9th century. Other come from the 15th and 19th c. These are mainly palaces and great estates. The main attraction in Sintra is the Castle of the Moors where tourists can admire the panoramic view of Lisbon. Sintra is located near Capo de Roca, which is the westernmost point of Europe. Visitors may enjoy rocky beaches and subtropical gardens.
I focused on walking through the Old Town and taking photos. That's the outcome:
