Hike In Sintra

"Sintra mountain is a small massif - the Roman promontory of the moon - set before the ocean which climbs up to 528 meters at Cruz Alta. Once the domain of bushland the mountain has changed its features after the introduction of several forest essences. Today, in certain areas you can breath the air of a dense forest which contrasts with the cover of the coastal strip or the limestone platform in São João das Lampas. The exotic vegetation reaches its higher expression in the Pena and Monserrate Parks.
Cliffs, small arribas, beaches, dunes and the Rocha muzzle draw a seashore that amazes with its vigour and there are even dinosaur footprints tracks (Praia Grande do Rodízio).
Besides countless examples of erudite architecture - the Palácio da Vila (Village Palace) with its unique chimneys is the symbol of the Park - and with its well preserved gardens, the Sintra-Cascais Nature Park (14.583 ha) houses within it curious manifestations of popular architecture.
The undeniable scenic value associated with this protected area was recognized by UNESCO by integrating part of the mountain and Sintra's historical centre in the World Heritage List with the category of "cultural landscape"."
