What you'll do
In a wonderful and colorful afternoon, we will begin our walk in Sintra's Historic Centre, so that when you come face to face with nature you can feel it more intensely. In the Historic Centre you will listen to an insightful introduction about the region and a selection of romantic stories – from Sintra’s History - set in the place where you are now standing. We will then go off the beaten track into a quieter part of the surroundings, climbing the hills and wandering through the woodlands as you discover romantic 18th and 19th centuries meeting spots, documented in historic literature and personal memoirs. Along the way, we will stop at a number of scenic points to admire the stunning surrounding landscapes and marvel at the nearby monuments, including Pena Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, and Sintra National Palace. On our route you will see a number of houses and villas that reflect Sintra’s Romanticism era, learning about the tales of the people who once lived here. Our 6 kilometer walk will end right back where it started, leaving you to enjoy a quieter ambient in the Village, given that by the end of the afternoon the crowds that populate Sintra are mostly gone.
My name is Miguel Boim, also known as "O Caminheiro de Sintra (The Sintra Wanderer)", and I am responsible for the notorious Sintra Mountains thematic night walks. I'm glad to be recognized as the foremost local researcher on Sintra's History. I'm also an author, known in Portugal as one of the most enthralling storytellers on the nation's History. As of 2018, I've told Sintra's stories to over 12.000 people. "Sintra Lendária (Legendary Sintra)" is my literary flagship, already in its 2nd edition.
Where you'll be
As we will begin - and end - in Sintra's Historical Centre, you will be able to see Sintra's National Palace (from the outside) as well as some other points of interest in the Village. We will then slowly climb the hills under the treetops, from where you will be able to see - in the distance - Sintra's Castle, Pena Palace, the National Palace, the Atlantic Ocean, and others. You will also pass near Quinta da Regaleira and Seteais Palace.
