Romantic Sintra, an inspiring place for artists and poets

Romantic Sintra, an inspiring place for artists and poets
Sintra National Palace presents characteristics of Medieval, Gothic, Manueline, Renaissance and Romantic architecture.
It is considered an example of organic architecture, of a set of bodies apparently separate, but which are part of a whole articulated among themselves, through patios, stairs, corridors and galleries. It has the largest set of Mudejar tiles in the country.

The Palace was used by the Portuguese Royal Family until the end of the Monarchy, in 1910.

In 1992, UNESCO extended the categories of World Heritage and added that of Cultural Landscape.
Sintra was classified as a World Heritage Site, under the category “Cultural Landscape”, on December 6, 1995

Excellent panoramic image of the unmistakable National Palace.
I visited Sintra and its surroundings a few years ago and the memory is still vivid and pleasant.

Yes, Keith
When talking about Sintra in the sec. XIX the most recurring figure is that of Byron, who at Lawrence Hotel will have written part of his "Child Harold Pilgrimage", where he dedicates verses to Sintra:

“Lo! Cintra’s glorious Eden intervenes

In variegated maze of mount and glen.

Ah me! what hand can pencil guide, or pen,

To follow half on which the eye dilates

Through views more dazzling unto mortal ken

Than those whereof such things the bard relates,

Who to the awe-struck world unlocked Elysium’s gates?”
