hkskyline's 2008 SINTRA, PORTUGAL Photo Collection

1. Sintra is another very worthwhile day trip. At a bargain basement price on the rails from Lisbon, it was an eye-opener with a lot of good things to see. Not knowing the rugged terrain, I was quite surprised by all the views offered at the various monuments.











6. Lunch consisted of a nice meal sitting along a staircased alley within the maze of buildings.









10. A coat of paint makes a world of difference.











15. Beautiful tilework adorn the streets.





17. The cobblestone street, coupled with an old house in the background, make a serene setting.



18. Although not wheelchair-accessible, add a staircase, and the Old World charm is enhanced.





































More in the next part!

109. Pena Castle is one of the most unique buildings I've seen, with a seemingly weird mix of shapes, styles, and colours all in one.

















117. Once I started exploring the corners and ledges, I realized the view is quite good. I'm quite high up actually.



118. Looks like a fairy tale of a different kind.





















128. Looks like the Great Wall in the distance!
