'''Sintra''' is both a town and a municipality in the Lisbon Coast/aka [[Estoril Coast]] region of [[Portugal]]. Its spectacular setting, 28km from [[Lisbon]], houses a Royal Palace, used by generations of Portuguese royalty prior to the 1910 revolution. The surrounding hills are surmounted by the remains of the Moorish Castle and by the nineteenth-century Pena Palace. Historic Sintra is an heritage patrimony site declared by UNESCO.
The Estoril coast is often considered to be part of the Lisbon coast, which includes Cascais, Lisbon, Sintra, and other nearby municipalities.
