There is a special feeling when you visit Sintra, Portugal. Many say "spiritual vibes" and spectacular history. It is where the Portuguese kings would vacation and here at the Palace of the Seven Sighs you will know why. The Palace is now open to visitors and has become a five star hotel. The topiary gardens are very special and overlook the countryside, only ten miles from the ocean. This is one of those jewels that is kept a secret, but now you know!
