Drive from Sintra to Alcobaca, Portugal

The next destination after Sintra was another UNESCO World Heritage site, Alcobaca. The drive of 128kms took around and an hour or so. The drive route was so pleasing; we wished the journey would go on and on. Sharing here a few pictures from my drive to Alcobaca from Sintra Portugal.
