During your week with us you will have a guided tour in the beautiful Sintra.
Sintra is a beautiful small town situated within the hills of the Serra de Sintra - the Sintra mountains.
Sintra is regarded as one of the most romantic and mysterious cities in Portugal, with wonderful palaces, mansions, landscapes and an ancient Moorish castle.
The historical reason for the many mansions and palaces, is due to the slightly cooler climate that the hills of the Serra de Sintra provide. This made the nobility in Portugal construct their summer residences here and during the 19th century, Sintra was popular a popular destination for Europe’s wealthy artisans and elite, who built elaborate mansions following the Romanticism style of architecture.
