Sintra

One of the most romantic towns in Portugal, Sintra transports us to a world of mysticism, thanks to its natural beauty and its architectural heritage.

Vila always preferred by the kings to build their summer palaces, of which we highlight the National Palace of Sintra, the Pena Palace and the Palace of Seteais.

The Sintra National Palace in the center of the village was a royal residence from the time of Moors. Its origin dates back from the VIII century and since then has undergone several restoration work and improvements giving the palace a different architectural styles ranging from Moorish to Manueline style

Built in one of the highest peaks of the Sintra hills, the Pena Palace displays a huge variety of architectural styles. Built in the nineteenth century on the ancient ruins of a convent, we can see in the Palace of Pena traces of neomanuelino style and romance, as well as beautiful German stained glass and porcelain oriental origin. On the outside we are presented for its beautiful gardens and its trees from several parts of the world.

Among its palaces, its legends, its narrow streets are the home to quaint shops where we can enjoy the excellent traditional sweets, Sintra is a must visit village.
