It was the official residence of several kings of Portugal.

Its microclimate transforms this small town situated on the slopes of the mountain range “Serra de Sintra” next to the Atlantic, into a major attraction for visitors who go there to admire its famous castles and palaces or simply taste the traditional food, pastries and sweets.
