History and mysteries in Sintra Portugal

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.
