One of the best things about living in the Lisbon area, is to explore the surroundings, and Sintra is such a treasure to discover. You can't help being enchanted. I've been there twice and surely want to return. It's an old and very traditional village, with loads of restaurants, cafes and bakeries, and shops where you can buy souvenirs and learn a bit more about this adorable place. The tiny streets, the clumsy paths... If you go through the mountains, you'll able to inhale so many freshness provided by the big trees and plants, and it's such a great feeling. Pure air. All the way through the mountains and trees, you'll find the most romantic, old and amazing castles and palaces to visit, such as the Pena Palace, the Monserrate Palace and the Castle of the Moors.
