I have written several times about the access to Sintra by car.
Since 2019, several places are not reachable by car, and only authorized vehicles can enter, and park.
Places such as: Pena National Palace, Moorish Castle, Pena Park, but also the central square of Sintra (Sintra National Palace).
All these places are not possible to enter with rental cars.
Check here for the map of Sintra, showing restrictions on car traffic: http://prntscr.com/1CmIbhk5Dz-h
(this itinerary is forbidden to reach by private/rental cars, all roads in blue are not acessible)
The best option is to hire an authorized car + driver, or take a taxi.
Please check here some options.
