Sintra has always been a romantic fairytale dream come true, be it for the enchanting houses adorned with colorful flowers or a castle covered in luscious green nature. Between the sea and the mountain, and with lots of cultures, Sintra is rightly distinguished as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In addition to the Romantic mixture of architectural styles, the mansions and number of the eye-catching towers beckon to tourists for its details and construction techniques. A pair of wells spiraling deep within the earth in Quinta da Regaleira, the turrets of the Pena Palace and the detailed Gothic arches of the Monserrate Palace are just a few of these unique features.
Walking up this whimsical town, you will find a stone fortress, the medieval Castle of the Moors, with stunning views over the mountainside! This castle was built during the period of Muslim Iberia, to protect the territory’s population.

Just as you cannot visit Belém without trying the pasteis de Belém, when you visit Sintra you ought to stop at the Casa Piriquita coffee shop! Order a coffee and a travesseiro (or two ;)) - a flaky and sweet cake filled with egg and almond cream, sprinkled with sugar. You should also try the queijadas de Sintra, which are round cakes filled with cheese, eggs, sugar, and cinnamon finished up in a delicious flour crust.
No matter how you plan your day in Sintra, its fairytale atmosphere will make worth your while, and make your experience unforgettable.
Cabo da Roca is the westernmost point in mainland Europe. Even though it’s almost always windy here, the cape terrain with cliffs and a charming 18th-century lighthouse are oftentimes described as a little wild and raw, but the blue waters of the Atlantic stretch endlessly into the horizon, turning the views into a real-life painting.

Very helpful. Work with his heart. Mark is a very nice advisor.Investidor de Marrocos
Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.Investidor dos EUA
