What can you say. If you’re doing Portugal and have the cash – splash out and rent a superb luxury villas! Why not eh!?
As ever – the Guardian write cracking reviews and opinions on travel destinations. This article is well worth a read.
Sintra is often described as a Disneyland for grown-ups, but spend time exploring the surrounding beaches, seafood restaurants and woodlands, and you’ll find there’s much more to this historic town, writes Isabel Choat
I simply have to start including posts and theories surrounding the more mystical side to Sintra. There are heaps of conspiracy theories – some based on factual events – some perhaps a bit airy-fairy. Either way it makes for a fascinating exploration of Sintra and the hidden meanings built into the architecture.
Sintra has had a dominant position for thousands of years. And as we all know, different cultures often build on top of older monuments (bit like churches being built on old Pagen centres) … so once you start exploring the hidden meanings – it can suck you in.
Nice little article with some amazing black and white photography of sights in and around SIntra.
Sintra was classified as a World Heritage by UNESCO, in 1995, at the category of Cultural Landscape. Lord Byron called it “a Garden of the Earthly Paradise”. Sintra is a gem of the Lisbon surrounding mountains. Feel free to browse some of the photos I took when I was there!

This is a wonderful blog post with first hand experience and photos to accompany the article of someone who spent a day trip visiting Sintra and Cabo da Roca. Well worth a read as it gives a great insight with no hidden ‘sales’ agenda.
