The quiet and beautiful Sintra

Written on : 17 October 2017

An open-air museum

Between sea and mountains, Sintra reveals one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Portuguese Atlantic coast. The city and its rich heritage are perfectly integrated into the decor, creating an exceptional harmony recognised as the patrimony of humanity.

About thirty kilometres North-West of Lisbon, Sintra is a dream destination for a cultural or romantic stay. From the 15th century, its landscape is shaped by luxurious residences built by the Lisbon aristocracy. Its pleasant setting, its preserved and generous nature and its romantic architecture help create a unique environment that is not found anywhere else. Far from the hustle and bustle of Lisbon and the surrounding seaside resorts, it is the calm and tranquillity that comes above all to seek here.

The architectural and historical heritage of Sintra is worth the trip alone. A Moorish castle from the 8th century, royal buildings and manors are nestled in the heart of a verdant landscape. As for the historical centre of the city, it is discovered like a pictorial book. Stroll randomly through its picturesque alleys to discover ancient palaces and many small shops. An atmosphere of a small village emerges, a real change of scenery!
