Sintra, Portugal

Sintra sits in the hills north-east of Lisbon, only a 30 minute train ride away from the city. The trees and castles of Sintra are a refreshing contrast to the traffic and building work in Lisbon.  The National Palace of Pena is one of the most bizarre places we have ever visited – a combination of grandeur, artistry and history, with brightly coloured walls that make you feel like the building is an escapee from Disneyland.  The Castle of the Moors is far more traditional.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
