Palace in Sintra

The Palacio Nacional (or Palacio Real) of Sintra was the summer residence of the kings of Portugal.

The palace was originally a Moorish castle but was rebuilt under Kings Dom Joao I and Dom Manuel in the 14th and 15th centuries in Gothic and Manueline styles.

The palace is now a museum.
