Paid 15€ to just see the walls and a bit of park. Seems like a cheap scam for tourists. Also workers are not friendly at all. Palace itself it is pretty, but the experience is a bit scammish.

The booking experience was straightforward and getting our tickets was easy. We didn't have tickets to visit the palace the day of and when we went on the official website all tickets were sold out at the time we needed. We found tickets for the right time on Headout by getting the fast pass option and it was great - no lines! Would recommend getting tickets through here, especially for last minute planners.

L'esterno molto bello, ma l'interno è stato abbastanza deludente, mi aspettavo di più da un castello così dello. Bisognerebbe trovare una maniera migliore per gestire le visite all'interno in quanto è troppo affollata. Il sistema della prenotazione a fascie orarie non è il migliore per l'affluenza dei turisti.

I biglietti e l app funziona benissimo, il palacio è molto particolare ed è da vedere a mio avviso. Per arrivarci è molto comodo da Lisbona un mezz'ora con il treno o la macchina . Noi abbiamo preso un uber spendendo 18 euro fino a Sintra e poi un autobus , esperienza interessante senonché abbiamo rischiato di arrivare tardi all'ingresso perché si ferma a tutte le fermate come se fosse un autobus di linea quindi valutate bene il tempo del vostro arrivo a sintra e l'orario dell ingresso .vista l'esperienza suggerisco di prendere uber o un taxi , vi costerà sicuramente di più di 4,50 euro ma non vi sale l'ansia ! Una volta arrivati al cancello dovete fare un bel percorso in salita di circa 20 minuti in mezzo ai giardini , quindi non siete arrivati ancora! Una piccola nota negativa avevo preso i biglietti per la navetta dal cancello all'ingresso , non siamo riusciti a prenderlo perché c'era una bella fila e solo 1 pulmino quello da 12 posti ! Ci hanno consigliato di muoverci a piedi altrimenti facevamo tardi infatti siamo arrivati solo 5 minuti dopo l'orario scelto e ci hanno fatto comunque entrare . Giusto per rendere l'idea siamo partiti con l'autobus quasi 1 ora e mezza prima e per fortuna! A parte le avventure per arrivare al palacio tutta la gita vale la pena , sia visitare Sintra , Molto carina con le viette saliscendi e il palacio sia dentro , molte sale ben conservate e ricche e il fuori con i suoi terrazzi . Tutto molto maestoso. Spero di essere stata utile . Ps lunga la strada che va al palacio ci sono altre attrazioni, monastero dei cappuccini e il castello del moro ecc , si può prendere il bus e risalire quando avete finito .se avete tempo sembra Interessante.il costo di questo biglietto mi sembra 13 euro..

Easy to book the tickets with Headout which saved us queuing ( the queue was very long). Beautiful Palace and grounds - well worth a visit and lots to see.
