Sintra, Lisboa, i-Portugal

Considered not only one of the wonders of Portugal but indeed of Europe, Sintra is truly a gem, rich in history which offers some of the most exquisite natural and architectural sites in the country. Once the town of the country's Royals, it now deservedly holds UNESCO world heritage status. Its unusual geography, nestled in a stretch of hills surrounded by plain, estuary or ocean, and its subsequent climate, create a verdant paradise where ornate palaces lie hidden behind tall trees and walled gardens, history abounds and romantics feel that they have at last found their nirvana.

Nearby places of interest:

National Palácio Nacional de Sintra
In the centre of Sintra, and an obvious landmark with its two enormous white chimneys, the Palácio Nacional de Sintra was a functioning royal palace until the early 1900s. Originally built under Moorish rule for sultans spending summers in the temperate mountain climate, the palace has been remodelled and altered by successive residents. Though predominantly Manueline and Gothic in architecture, the original Arab style still prevails in some parts of the building.
Certain rooms stand out because of their uniqueness and splendour. The Room of Swans is one example, its octagonal panelled ceiling decorated with paintings of the white bird of its name. Similar is the Room of Magpies, however the intricate décor here is connected to a tale of gossiping courtiers. Legend has it that King João I ordered the painting of magpies, the chattering bird, as a message to the ladies of the court whose whisperings of intrigue were distressing both him and his English Queen, Philippa of Lancaster. The Armoury (Sala dos Brasões) is richly decorated with the coats of arms of the Portuguese aristocracy and still shows evidence of the pacing of the imprisoned Dom Alfonso VI in its worn floor.



Palacio da Pena (Pena Palace)
The Palacio da Pena is an extravagant yet relatively modern building, erected in the 19th century in accordance with the whims and romantic fantasies of Ferdinand de Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the German husband of the then Queen Maria II. A true mixture of styles (Renaissance, Baroque, Moorish, Gothic and Manueline) adorn this enormous construction which occupies the site of a 16th century Hieronymite monastery, proudly sitting atop the hill behind the Vila de Sintra, at a height of 1500 metres. The outside evokes Disney in that its pink and yellow towers and domes boast drawbridges, sculptures and detail that one can only imagine exist in fantasy. Inside it has been kept very much as it was left by its last royal occupant, Queen Amélia who, fearing the inevitable downfall of the monarchy in Portugal, fled the palace and the country in 1910. The panoramic views from the courtyard here are breath-taking. If the hike up to the palace doesn't appeal, a taxi or bus is available. However, the walk back down is worth the effort as it gives the visitor a chance to take in the cool beauty of the wooded hills and see the extensive park belonging to the palace, which is impressive in its design and array of plants; credit once again to Ferdinand.



Quinta da Regaleira
Quinta da Regaleira is particularly special and is classified as World Heritage by UNESCO as testimony to this fact. Situated amongst dense woodland, its eerie turrets and nooks and crannies lend it an air of mystique added to by underground grottoes and two dry wells. One, 60m deep, is accessed by a spiral stone staircase and bears symbols related to the Knights Templar and the Masons, as do many other parts of the property. All this together with its lush gardens make it a unique place to visit.

Located in the Old Quarter of Sintra, the Quinta da Regaleira was built at the turn of the 20th century in the romantic ideal, this fascinating ensemble of constructions which were built in the middle of the dense forest is the result of the achievement of the mythical magical dreams of its owner, Antonio Augusto Carvalho Monteiro in conjunction with the talent of the scenographer-architect Luigi Manini.

The imagination of these two figures succeeded in achieving the revivalist sum of the most varied artistic trends - with particular reference to the Gothic, Manueline and Renaissance and the glorification of all things held sacred by humankind and particularly reflecting on Portuguese mythological and esoteric traditions.

The Quinta da Regaleira is a place to be felt. It is not sufficient to tell its story, of its countryside setting and its mysteries. It must be experienced first-hand, the scenography of its gardens and buildings must be seen and admired as should the Palácio dos Milhões, a true mansion of philosophy inspired by alchemy.

Visitors should stroll through the exotic, fabulous park, feel the spirituality of the first Christians in the Chapel of the Most Holy Trinity, which allows us to descend into the crypt which reminds us of the symbolism of the sacred place and the world beyond.

There is also a vast ensemble of turrets providing us with breathtaking views, strange recesses - half myth half saudade (missing), palace type residences of superb taste. Reference must be made to the adventures of the Knights of the Temple or the ideals of the master Masons, to descend into the initiation well via an immense spiral shaped staircase. And down below, standing on a light pointed star it is as if we were immersed in the womb of Mother Earth. All we must do is traverse the darkness of the labyrinth grottos until we reach the light, reflected in the water of lakes of surprising beauty.

Other Palaces
Included on the list of places to see must also be the palaces of Seteais and Monserrate. The former, a neo-classical building with a grand archway, is now a luxury hotel and hosts ballet in the summer. The latter is an extravagant mixture of European and Oriental architectural styles with a highly decorated tower, domes and much ornate detail.


Castelo dos Mouros (Moorish Castle)
Also high in the hills, the remains of the Moor's Castle date from the 8th century and marvellous views are attained by walking along the top of its walls.


Beaches
One is reminded that Sintra is near the coast and many beautiful beaches lie only a short drive away, or indeed a tram ride away, as an old-fashioned eléctrico tram service ferries people from Sintra to various villages and the charming Praia das Maçãs all year round. Praia Grande is a popular beach with surfers that come to ride its quality waves. There are a host of other beaches offering their own beauty and charm – such sandy coves include Azenhas do Mar, Praia do Magoito and Adraga.

Cabo Cabo da Roca
Also along this stretch of coast lies the windswept headland of Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point in mainland Europe, where a stroll taking in sea views can be rounded off with a coffee in the café cum gift shop, which offers a certificate to mark your visit to ‘where the land ends and the sea begins’.
Considered not only one of the wonders of Portugal but indeed of Europe, Sintra is truly a gem, rich in history which offers some of the most exquisite natural and architectural sites in the country. Once the t…
