Lisbon & Sintra, Portugal (August 2013)
Lisbon and the surrounding communities of Sintra and Cascais need to be on your must-see list before leaving Spain. By car, Lisbon is a hefty six-hour drive, but it is so worth the trip! We stayed in Sintra, which is between Lisbon and the coastal areas of Cascais and Almocageme. From Sintra you can be in the heart of Lisbon in under half and hour, or on the beach in even less time. The entire Lisbon area is so beautiful...these pictures don't even begin to do it all justice, but it's a start. I hope you can go and experience it for yourself!
