Introduction to Sintra
Essentially romantic in character this town was poetically described by Lord Byron as "this glorious Eden". It was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Original Sintra is not large to visit but it now encompasses two outlying areas named Estefânia and São Pedro. As the older part sits on a granite slope it is best seen on foot or by a horse-drawn carriage. Abounding in history the town is dominated by the two conical chimneys of the Palácio Nacional da Vila that was the summer home of the royal family since the 15th Century. Scattered on the hillside are several historical creations openly showing the diverseness of each original owner's taste in architecture. The most outstanding example is possibly the Palácio da Pena, a 19th Century recreation of different styles admired by Dom Fernando II, the husband of the young Portuguese Queen Maria II, often regarded as a failed attempt to create his own romantic revival. This castle stands high on the southeast side of the mountain range whilst overlooking the village are the ruined ramparts of the Castelo dos Mouros, a fort dating from the 8th Century. Within it is an ancient Moorish cistern and the panoramic view from its walls is impressive. There are several churches in the town and the most interesting is the 12th Century Igreja de Santa Maria rebuilt in 1755 after the earthquake. Several private palaces are open to the public amongst which are the Palácio de Seteais, a magnificent 18th Century home converted into a five star Hotel, Casa dos Ribafrias, a 16th Century building once belonging to the Marquês de Pombal, Quinta de Pena Verde, another 16th Century palace. Another place of interest is the Convento dos Capuchos, an unusual hermitage with tiny dwarf cells cut from the rock. Within the old town there are two museums, Museu de Brinquedo showing only toys from the past and present, and the Museu Regional retelling the history of the area with items and relics an sometimes also holding art exhibitions.

Sintra Nearby Locations
Not to be missed is the Gardenpark of Monserrate for the vast and endless variety of exotic trees, subtropical plants and shrubs that were imported in the 19th Century to create this park. If you have time there is the charmingly restored old electric train from the town to the west to the not too distant beach resort of Praia da Maçãs and the craggily perched coastal village of Azenhas de Mar. Also to the west is the village of Colares that is famous for its white wine that is the only one in Portugal that enjoys a bottle life that exceeds the normal two or three years. To the north is the town of Mafra with its imposing Monastery. Another place of interest are the Roman ruins at São Miguel de Odrinas.
