Straddling seven hills on the edge of the Atlantic, the coastal city of Lisbon serves as the district's main holiday destination, drawing pleasure seekers with its old-fashioned hospitality, rich cultural scene, and vibrant nightlife. Further inland spreads the district's serene countryside, studded with quaint villages, monasteries, and wineries. The small town of Sintra, a standout among the district's notable places to visit, boasts a well-preserved Moorish castle and a lavish royal palace and gardens, former summer residence of Portuguese aristocrats.
