Explore: Sintra, Portugal
Sintra, Portugal is a suburb of the capital city, Lisbon, that I hadn’t heard of until recently. But after seeing pictures of the Romantic architecture, castles, sweeping landscapes, and colorful buildings, I’m not surprised that this town is quickly becoming a popular tourist destination. Some places to check out would include the Regaleira Palace and Gardens, which is a picturesque palace and chapel set in a backdrop of lakes, grottoes, and fountains. the Monserrate garden, and the Moorish castle, which is the ruins of the castles built by the Moor empire in the 9th century. If I ever get the chance to go, I would definitely hit up these spots and so should you.
