SINTRA
Sintra is the Romantic place in Portugal. Inlaid in the foothills to the north of the Sintra range, it is a wonderful mosaic of intertwining constructions half-hidden in the thick woods and the massive boulders. Sintra constitutes a microclimate, and it is much more humid that anywhere else in the Lisbon area. The mountain range and the proximity to the sea make it a very breezy and cool area, and that is the reason why it soon became a favourite summer spot for the royal Portuguese family, ever since the first dynasty. The whole village is enthralling, from the tiniest corner to the most exuberant of palaces.


It is inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage List.
