Storybook Sintra, a Palace in Portugal

The palace that was a creation of King Ferdinand II is like a fairytale upon a hill which is fitting because Sinta, the small town below, is like that out of a storybook.  I decided to walk up through the park but the climb was much steeper than I had anticipated.  Note: wearing a dress and sandals may not be appropriate attire for hiking about in the forest.  My strenuous work in improper clothing paid off however, because as I ascended, this bright, fanciful building popped through the tree line.  I was alone in the wilderness and it was as if I had just stepped into a fable and uncovered the enchanted castle.
