Some of the unique fine art pieces on permanent display in the sumptuous National Palace in Sintra are now on available for online viewing thanks to Google's Art Project.
That's right, you can now see a selection of some of the signature artworks from the comfort of your desk chair or mobile device. Google's tool offers you a chance to scan through works of art from around the world and perhaps find the one that you find most engaging, so you know exactly what to look for and make the most of your precious travel time. It is also a godsend to all those who are for any reason unable to travel physically to witness first hand such artistic delights.
If this all seems a little too digital and inane and you are more of a tactile person, then take the trip out to Sintra and see these splendid artworks for yourself.
