Virtual tour - Palácio Nacional de Sintra
It is worth visiting the interior of the palace, where it is possible to find out a little more about the history of Portugal. Beginning with the nation’s first dynasties, Sintra was one of the preferred places of Portuguese kings and queens. The decoration of the palace is quite remarkable, being a combination of various artistic styles that depended on the respective tastes of the kings that lived here. Here you can also find a brief history of the development of the decorative tile (azulejo) in Portugal, with examples ranging from the Spanish-Moorish tiles to the typical blue-and-white tiles of the 18th century.
