What to expect?

Itinerary:

  • In the Historical Centre, you'll meet the Sintra's foremost history researcher, Miguel Boim, who will tell you how the hills, valleys and the Royal Palace were in the distant past.
  • take in some life stories from other centuries, along with the romantic themes associated with them, which will surely touch your heart.
  • After learning some accounts of interest regarding the area, we'll enter a more quiet place, climbing the hills and broaching romantic habits from the 18th and 19th centuries that can be found in past documents, as well as in personal written memories.
  • The terrain will be irregular in some parts, but nothing a person with no movement impairment can't handle. The effort implied is equivalent to a stroll around Sintra's Historical Center for the whole afternoon.
  • In some of the valleys, there will occur more stops for you to rest and enjoy the landscape, having in view some important monuments in the distance (Pena Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, Sintra National Palace and others) as well as the Atlantic Ocean (also in the distance).
  • On the way back (it is a circular route) and before arriving at the historic Centre you will see - from the outside - houses and villas once important in the Romanticism era in Sintra. Upon your return to the Historic Centre, you'll have the opportunity to visit it in the evening and, therefore, more calmly than during the day among the crowd.
  • The walk will end at the Historic Centre.
