English English Portuguese Portuguese Spanish Spanish

Sintra, not exactly and attraction but a combination of the best attractions in one village, located 30min from Lisbon, once the land of kings and queens.

Depicted by Lord Byron as “Magnificent Eden,” Sintra’s charms have long been commended. When the late spring home of the rulers of Portugal and of the Moorish rulers of Lisbon before them, today Sintra is a sentimental getaway for individuals from all around the globe.

An UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sintra, this enchanted spot is ruled by steep mountains and lavish woodlands which make a microclimate, constantly a few degrees cooler than Lisbon. Facilitating Disneyland-like royal residences with neo-gothic towers, an outing from Lisbon to Sintra is an unquestionable requirement.

Sintra’s celebrated past is delegated by two tops: Moorish Castle, assembled by Moors in the eighth century, and Pena Palace, the bright dream-like royal residence manufactured by a German respectable man for his Portuguese wife. These two crests give terrific perspectives over the whole zone stretching out similarly as the ocean. Right in the focal point of Sintra is the Palácio Nacional de Sintra. But its two immense white smokestacks it would seem that some other customary royal residence, yet its genuine fortunes lie inside. Different attractions in the region can be recorded as Palacio de Seteais, which serves as a lodging today, and outside Sintra, the Quinta da Regaleira, patio nurseries of Monserrate and Convento dos Capuchos. These spots are completely worth for a visit for much more extravagance.
