The Magical Mysteries Of Sintra, Portugal......

A majestic castle sits high on the hilltop looming down over the charming, cobblestoned village below. An imposing, white palace takes center stage with its fairytale-like, cone shaped chimneys. I feel like a Princess in a story book just waiting to be whisked away by Prince Charming who just happens to already be at my side.

This is the village of Sintra, Portugal that is dripping with ancient history and medieval charm. Since we arrive late in the afternoon we don't have too much time to explore today. We set out on foot up the hill into the village to explore the National Palace. It seems that wherever we look, in every direction there are more magnificent buildings to see and we are in awe. Tomorrow we head out early to take in the sights of this magical, mysterious city of Sintra.......along the gringo trail.
