Travel and Discover Sintra, Portugal
Blending the fantastic with the palatial, Sintra—a picturesque retreat perched in the hills near Lisbon—is a swirl of fairy-tale styles, combining exotic and local architecture with beautiful vistas.
Topped with a palace that is the epitome of the Romantic movement – the National Palace of Pena – these hills are filled with many remarkable monuments and parks, including the National Palace of Sintra—the summer destination of choice for the nobility and bourgeois since the 15th century.
Hillside Palaces and Centuries of Culture
Sintra was the first European site listed by UNESCO as a Cultural Landscape. It encompasses about 960 hectares and forms part of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Located on granite hills less than an hour from Lisbon, its unique and mild microclimate has, since the times of the Muslim occupation, made it a favourite summer resort of kings and aristocrats, who built palaces and planted gardens and forests of immeasurable value. In 1995, the World Heritage Committee recognised Sintra as a unique example of a location which retains significant features of the successive cultures that occupied these lands and that still harmoniously coexist today.
