Palaces are strewn all over the wooded hills of Sintra. You will feel in fairyland. Pine woods grow around immense boulders and elegant manors peek from behind trees and stone walls.
Pena, Monserrate, Seteais are jewels of the eclectic Portuguese Romantic style.
And sitting atop a high hill, you will find an intact ring of embattled walls and towers. This is Castelo dos Mouros. Twelve centuries ago, the Moors built it. And to this day, it watches faithfully the faraway seacoast.
Wander among the trees and rocks within, hear the flags fluttering in the wind. This is what “Narnian” means. And this is a private tour through Sintra’s compelling history.
