Next Station, Sintra

We landed in Sintra after a quick morning jaunt in Lisbon again, to a fairytale region of National Park and Castles.

This WC en route to the downtown train station in Lisbon-- never did get to test-drive it, but at least we saw the sign...


... and there was this sign, by an old castle wall...


... coffee terrace, still en route...


...and the beautiful downtown Lisbon train station.


Landing to sunshine and quite a bit more warmth in Sintra...


... and of course, beautiful tile-work everywhere!


Exotic plants, just hanging about...


...lunch in front of hostel building...


... and a close-up view of castles in Sintra...


...


...

... and the one that we were going to walk to at the very top of this hill... waaaaaaaay up there!


Winding our way through cobblestone streets, working our way upwards...


...

...


... nooks and crannies of beauty everywhere...


... and then old forests and moss-covered stones became more prevalent as we made our way higher up the mountain.



These stones have a lot of stories to tell, I am sure!


So close!
