We took the bus which provides a scenic ride to the Palace. Quite grand and really does seem fairy-tale like. Beautiful gardens, beautiful palace and the weather was perfect. We can certainly understand the draw to this magical place. The town of Sintra is charming, but we could not find the horse drawn carriages. People were wonderful.
Having said that, Sintra is a tourist trap. Everything is substantially more expensive than in other parts of Portugal. We sat down for a drink (1 beer & 1 Sangria for 17.50 Euro.....is just a bit over the top). Entrance fees were high.
