This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Centro Historico de Sintra, Sintra 2710-616 Portugal

As you reach Sintra's Historic Centre you will begin to feel the ancestry of everything that surrounds you. But all this that you see now, was it exactly the same in the past? That is one of the things that will be unveiled in our two-hour evening visit, strolling around Sintra Village.

But there's more. In the standout – and lesser known as well – monuments there still endure symbols today that, while being visible, remain hidden from the careless crowds that populate Sintra during the day.

The ancient configurations and hidden symbols will surprise you, even more so because you will have access to old maps and engravings from distant centuries; and comparing the present to the past will produce the impact that you are looking for while visiting Sintra!

While digging through the old past, you will encounter some sightseeing places in the right time of day, as well as discrete corners that hold powerful and important events from the past.

And why does Sintra have such an intense mysticism associated with the Mountains? That’s one of the things I will be telling you about, all the while conveying some odd accounts from ancient Portuguese chronicles.

After strolling around – also climbing up stairs and climbing down streets – we will end our visit in the Historic Centre.
