Definitely worthy of the 1 euro cost per chocolate cup shot.
Definitely cures the “angry feet” from all the walking up and down hills and cobblestones.Sintra was the summer retreat for the blue-bloods to escape the Lisbon heat. The elevation brought breezes and the wooded hillside kept the temperature down. As you stroll the historic district, the buildings all have interesting architecture, angles and signs of the wealthy past with plaques to Lord Byron and other English expatriates. Fado music streams from the bars. I found many quaint stores with locally-made products and delicious Portugese restaurants. Though it is a well-known tourist destination, Sintra seems to be still run by the locals with local crafts – a well spent day in Sintra.
