Well... Sintra is a very nice place, full of treasures to explore... You should go. If one day you wanna go and if you need a tourist guide, you can always contact me.
About this palace, it camed from a medieval palace, it was built on the top of a muslim palace and from the beggining of the portuguese monarchy, our kings had a palace in Sintra.
This room is called, Sala dos Brasões (Nobel Arms Room) because of the 72 noble arms that are represented. The arms of the king are represented on the center. The walls are covered with portuguese glazed tiles.
