This beautiful palace of Sintra is currently being restored. The city is a World Heritage Site because it has everything: castles, museums, and palaces. It is a charming place where everything seems magical, including the beautiful coastline. There are a few miles of beaches actually, so it would be a perfect place for a holiday. Other palaces that really struck me were the Pena Palace (located in the top of a hill and surrounded by lush vegetation) and Seteais and Regaleira.
