Sintra, Portugal (24 May 2009)

The next day, we took a day trip to Sintra, about 28km from Lisbon. We then took the nearby bus to go to the Moorish castle and of course the famous Palace of Pena. Moorish castle was just a normal looking castle which looks like Great Wall of China in the middle of a forest. The cost to go in was cheap and indeed hiking up those great wall lookalike wall was quite a tough case.

After conquering the great wall lookalike castle in jungle, we headed to the famous Palace of Pena. From outside the castle looks a bit dodgy with paints all peeled off from the wall. The palace does look a bit like those fairytale kind from far
