It’s Sunday – Sintra

Sintra, UNESCO World Heritage, is a beautiful village where the Portuguese Kings used go to spend summer so as to flee stinky, hot Lisbon and catch the fresh breeze of the Atlantic Ocean in the mountains. In the 19th Century the nobles followed their footsteps and built impressive built mansions around the Pena Palace. Worth a days visit.
