Sintra in April

I have been reading about the long lines for the bus to the Pena palace and other sights. Are they typically long in mid April? (Easter is April 1 this year and we will be there around the 18th or 19th).

Always long, how long depende on the number of cruises on port on those days and the number of buses that will arrive on that day to the Palace.

Walking is a good alternative.

We were in Sintra at the end of April this year and the line to get tickets was not too bad. However, the crowds inside the Pēna Palace were beyond imagination, so we left very quickly and went the Palace Gardens instead which are totally magical. Quinta da Regaliera and Moorish Castle were very manageable.
