Roaming through... Sintra

If there's a special and unique place in the world, that place must be the villa of Sintra!

Shrouded in mist and mysticism, where in each corner there's a palace, a fountain or a museum, and everywhere there are trees and legends, there's no doubt that Sintra is romantic, poetic and incredibly rich, and leaves no one indifferent to its beauty!

Considered by UNESCO World Heritage and Cultural Landscape, Sintra reminds kings and fairy tales.

You will need several days to be delighted with the most important places, or you might leave some of them undiscovered, so you'll have an excuse to come back over and over again...

Full of History and architectural details, Monserrate Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, or Pena Palace are important monuments of Romantic Era surrounded by beautiful botanical gardens, full of endemic and exotic species.

Don't forget to hike up to the castle, Castelo dos Mouros, and simply wander through the streets, dreaming of the beautiful houses and chalets.

And if you feel tired and hungry, there are great tea rooms, nice restaurants, and, of course, regional sweets you don't want to miss: "travesseiros" and "queijadas" are delicious!

On your way back, take the road to Cabo da Roca, and go North along the seaside, exploring the beaches Adraga, Azenhas do Mar or Magoito. You won't regret!
