Exquisite mansions and palaces are in abundance and we take time to wander through Sintra National Palace, built as a Moorish Palace around a thousand years ago. It became the summer retreat for the Portuguese royal family for six centuries and its simple, white exterior conceals many ornately decorated state rooms.
