Join us on a trip back in history and find out how it feels to live in an enchanted medieval city – take the “Palaces and Nature of Mysterious Sintra” tour!

Described by one of the greatest British poets, Lord Byron, as a “Glorious Eden” – Sintra’s charm have long been celebrated. Once the summer residence of the kings of Portugal and of the Moorish lords of Lisbon, today Sintra is a romantic getaway for people from all around the world.

According to UNESCO, “the cultural landscape of the Serra and the town of Sintra represents a pioneering approach to Romantic landscaping that had an outstanding influence on developments elsewhere in Europe. It is a unique example of the cultural occupation of a specific location that has maintained its essential integrity as the representation of diverse successive cultures. Its structures harmonize indigenous flora with a refined and cultivated landscape created by man as a result of literary and artistic influences…”

Sintra’s illustrious past is crowned by two peaks: The Moorish Castle, built by Moors in the 8th century, and The Pena Palace, the colourful dream-like palace. These two peaks provide spectacular views over Sintra, extending as far as the sea. In the centre of the old town we will find the National Palace of Sintra.
