Sintra, classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO since 1995, in the category of Cultural Landscape, is a gem set between mountain and sea waiting to be discovered by those who dare lose themselves in the majesty of its historical heritage, exuberant nature, sophisticated cultural offer, rich gastronomic flavours and the numerous activities provided.

A town rich in monuments, where architectural testimonies emerge, framed by luxuriant nature, inviting us on a journey in time. A mountain, the «Serra», its nature almost untouched, coexists in harmony with castles and palaces, extending horizons all the way to the ocean.

A trip to Cabo da Roca is imperative. A charismatic place. For geographers, this cape is the westernmost point of Europe. For poets, the place where land ends and the sea begins.

The coastal profile also hides truly astonishing bays, to the delight of all those who can’t resist an invigorating dip or, those, more bold, who tackle the deep blue balancing on a board.

You can appreciate all the beauty of the landscape with its castles, palaces, villas and cottages, all in perfect harmony with nature.

The very best in the world can be found in Sintra. Immerse yourself in its uniqueness. Come visit us. We’ll be waiting for you.
