Sintra  
This is a region with a glorious and glamorous past, inhabited and visited by the aristocracy and royalty since the Medieval era.

Characteristic traits of the various historical periods may by found around the region; houses and walls are covered in a rich vegetation (moss, ferns and bushes), which grows due to the existing microclimate.

This unique environment inspired literary production by many authors who fell in love with the Sintra Mountain.
