Day Trip to Sintra Portugal

Other than the main tourist attractions in the city, day trip always excites me. Somewhere away from the city centre, some place more peaceful, something that’s very different. I went to Sintra, and it’s only 30 mins train ride from Lisbon.

Moorish Castle, a hint of Beijing’s Great Wall.

Pena National Palace, beautiful exterior colors, exquisite interior details.

After waiting for an hour for the bus, and another 40 minutes bus ride, I arrived at Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Portugal and Europe. Breathtaking scenery, I couldn’t resist of a photo! It would be nice if I could stay to shoot the sunset, but the last bus to leave was at 9pm. Maybe next time!
