Enchanted Sintra, the Mountain of the Moon
Sintra brings together magic and mystery, combining nature and the human presence, in an almost perfect relationship ruled by endless beauties and romanticism, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
In this tour, we will visit some of the most representative monuments of the village, where we will stroll through the historic centere, enjoy stunning natural landscapes, learn about its history and taste some local delicacies to finish in perfection.
Pena palace, the crown of Sintra
The Palace of Pena along with its, vibrant colours, is the ultimate exponent of Romanticism of the nineteenth century, a fanciful reconstruction of Manueline and Moorish influences, a result of the creative genius of D. Fernando II.
The view of the Palace reveals all the patrimony and natural beauty that is always present throughout this visit, wherever you look – the mountain range in all its extension surrounded here and there by romantic palaces and chalets, the luxurious Park which surrounds the Palace has more than five hundred tree species from the four corners of the world, the Castle of the Moors, the historic centrer… Shall we go?
Quinta da Regaleira, a well of mysteries
Next stop – Quinta da Regaleira, built in the 20th century placed next to the historic centre, an idea and a dream of a millionaire, known as Monteiro dos Milhões, helped by the creative expertise of the architect and set designer Luigi Manini.
Quinta da Regaleira, with its exuberant palace and garden, is a true cosmological testimony, a prologue to the spiritual memory of humanity, based on the Lusa and Universal Mythical Tradition, with its many mysteries, of which we highlight the unmissable initiation well.
The village streets:, a meeting point of beauty and heritage
After visiting two of Sintra’s most emblematic monuments, we finish this visit in the streets of the Historic Centre where there is the singular Palace of the Village with its giant chimneys. And this is the ideal time to taste the sweet delights of Sintra, in a local pastry shop, let us invite you!
