We hummed and hahhed about wether or not we should spend our layover time in Lisbon or Sintra. Thank goodness we chose Sintra. Lisbon is fine, Sintra is gorgeous. There is so much attention to detail in every little crevice of the town. We took our chances on an AirBnB and scored. It did rain so our time was limited. We visited the princess's castle. It was perfect - caves, spiral staircases, towers, gardens and fancy ceilings.

Soren found cats hiding everywhere in Sintra.

Our AirBnB. It looks shabby on the outside. Fully remodeled on the inside and in the heart of the town.

You give money and people set up these little make shift homes for stray cats. Rather than finding them a home....

Narrow streets...a theme for the trip

The Moors castle. We did not make it. it was only 1km but the kids resisted hiking straight uphill.

Fancy. that is a ceiling

Another ceiling

I bet you want this door knob now
