On our third day in Lisbon we took a day trip to Sintra. I was most excited to see Quinta da Regaleira, for the amazing gardens, so we headed there first. We spent several hours exploring the tunnels, turrets and statues throughout.

Next, we went to see Castelo dos Mouros, catching a bus from Sintra’s town centre to save walking the steep hill. The views (and the wind!) at the top were pretty spectacular.

We ended the day on the beach at Cascais. There’s no photographic evidence, because I was too nauseous after catching the long scenic bus from Sintra.
