    Well, if it is worth, depends on your intentions. A lot of the houses in Azenhas were repainted in recent years but there is still a "whole" in the middle, means broken houses. From the viewpoint it is still a nice view on the village, the sea water swimming pool can't be used for years.
    If you depend on public transport, I would say not worth. (There is a bus - No 443 - from Sintra Portela (!) station to Fontanelas which stops in Azenhas.)If you have a car and do the tour Sintra - Cabo da Roca - Cascais it is worth doing that little detour. - For lunch or dinner I recommend Restaurant "Nautilus" in Praia das Macas.

    Have fun!

    Thanks!

    Do the bus start outside the train station in Sintra?

    The bus starts out at the station "Portela de Sintra". That is the one befre the final station (Sintra). Details see: www.cp.pt

    Enjoy!
