Sintra awaits for your visit
"I had always loved Sintra! As soon as one entered, the dark, murmurous trees of the Ramalhão gave it a happy melancholy! (...) the walks around Seteais in the moonlight, strolling on the pallid grass, with long, silent rests in Penedo da Saudade, gazing at the valley, the sands in the distance, full of a healthy, idealising white light; the hot siestas in the shade of Penha Verde, listening to the cool water trickling from stone to stone; the afternoons in Várzea de Colares, rowing an old boat on the dark water in the shade of the ash-trees."
