Wear flat shoes if you wish to trwk to the Moorish Castle. Eat light in case you are making a trek up the hill. Carry water. And reach the ticket counter at least by 5.30 pm to catch a glimpse of the Sintra city.

Just walking by and came upon this church worthy of mention. I understand the original church in the 1100s didn't survive the 1755 earthquake; nor did the priest celebrating mass at that moment. We have seen the resurrected Jesus wearing purple just like this one elsewhere.

Igreja de Sao Martinho is a deceptively large and beautiful church in SIntra. It doesn't look like much from the outside. A church since from the 13th century, the current incarnation only dates back to the 18th Century after it was destroyed by an earthquake. The interiors is very much Romanesque with it barrel vault and rounded arches, with beautiful, but not exceptional interiors.

Not a must see, but worth a quick look if you have time in Sintra. They do have a small museum which will give a lot more historical information about the church.

Originally built in Romano-Gothic style, the Church of St. Martin was damaged during the Great Earthquake. Although it stood at the base, but it was not safe to hold services and therefore it underwent reconstruction, which changed its appearance. The most notable is the red-and-gold baroque altar. Several paintings by local artists date back to the 16th century. Otherwise, everything is modest.

Don't miss this little church. We didn't expect to see a church that clearly shows it's Romanesque origins. It dates back to the 12th century, but has been modified (modernized i guess) over time and now also shows Gothic elements. The 1755 eat quake allowed for some further changes. Of interest are the 3 16th century paintings, painted on wood panels as well as some very old frescos on the walls and ceiling. The altar definitely feels old. The church is located in the heart of Old Sintra. Walk around the church and look for the best angle for a shot of the bell tower with the Moorish castle in the background.

Beautiful church in the upper part of the town, not very touristy, excellent and panoramic position, simple on the outside, revealing rich decorations, statues and paintings, frescoes and stuccos inside, certainly worth a visit, pleasant and welcoming.
