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!
