We are taking a cruise from Lisbon in mid September and fling in 5 days early to visit the area. We’ve been to Lisbon on two previous cruises so we saw the basic tourist spots in Lisbon and Sintra. Anyway we would like to use our Marriott points and stay at either the Penha hotel in Sintra or The Praia D’El Rey in Obidos or possibly spliting between both. Any suggestions on what would be best….we would like to see some nice areas not staying on the hotel grounds while also enjoying the local foods.
Hey, just saw your question. If you go to Obidos, I would highly recommend a visit to Bacalhoa Buddha Eden (Bombarral), It’s a park that was created by a winery with tons of great art. It’s truly special.
When you go to Sintra, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out Monserrate. It is my fave of the palaces and usually not at all crowded.
