Sintra is one of those earthly havens created with a divine hand, sublimely sculpting Nature as if to surprise us and surrender us to its beauty.

Sintra is a place to feel. Talking about it, telling its story or describing its scenery is not nearly enough. It’s a place with spirit, a place that speaks to us from within.

The mystery surrounding its Mountains or Monte da Lua (Moon Hill); the chromatic depth of its landscape surprising us, like a grand collective canvas; the inspirational and dreamy sea; its legends and century-old traditions; its unique people, known for their hospitality and sympathy; in short, all this and much more, a place where words are not enough to describe, makes Sintra the ‘Glorious Eden’ that Lord Byron praised.

Welcome to Sintra
