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.

Praia das Maçãs is located 13 Km west from Sintra. This small village offers one of the best sandy beaches in the region. Life here is still undisturbed. Only on week-ends can you meet a few more visitors looking for relaxation. In Praia das Maçãs one finds everything required for the day to day needs. There are two small supermarkets, one butchery, one bakery, a post office, a few shops and some good restaurants. On weekdays, there is a small open air market offering fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as a lot of other items.
An old tramway was reactivated, and travels again between Praia das Maçãs and the entrance of Sintra during summertime.
There are a large number of interesting places to visit in the area. Short south of Praia das Maçãs one finds Praia Grande, at the footsteps of the Sintra mountains. The small village of Azenhas do Mar (2 Km north) is an unforgettable picture, with its houses hanging on the cliff above the ocean.
