Portugal (Sintra)

Castelo dos Mouros, taking the bus is the best option. Bus 434 does a one- way circuit from the train station to the town centre, Castelo dos Mouros and Palácio da Pena. Tickets are €5 (to be bought from the driver), and you can hop on and off whenever you want. Be aware that the bus can be very crowded, and especially the stretch leading up to the Moorish Castle is very bumpy, with many hairpins. You can also walk to the Palácio da Pena and the Castelo dos Mouros. The trek is a rather daunting, steep one-hour climb from the town centre. If you feel fit, though, the beautiful woodlands and the stunning view from the top are generous rewards for your troubles. On foot
