The Central Portugal region

The golden sands, the pure Atlantic waters and the coastline with magnificent cliffs turn the Sintra beaches into real pleasure spots.

Besides bathing and the radiant summer sun, the Sintra beaches also afford superb conditions for water sports, while the cliffs provide paragliding lovers with excellent jumping ramps. Fishing, surfing and body-board are among the sports most commonly practiced along the Sintra coastline.

Most Sintra beaches are of a high quality, both regarding water tests and infrastructures.

Besides the best-known beaches S. Julião, Magoito, Maçãs, Grande and Adraga there are others which are true paradises that should not be missed.


Classified by UNESCO as World Heritage and Cultural Landscape during the 19th Session of the UNESCO Committee which took place on 6th December 1995, Sintra is one of those magic places where nature and man combined in a perfect symbiosis, as if they wanted to surprise us and fill us with emotion in the beauty of their work.

It is this beauty and collective memory left by our forefathers that we must preserve and complement, so that future generations may find here, as we did, the cultural roots and human values that are fundamental to the peoples' life and harmonious co-existence.

Witness throughout the years to the passage of many peoples and cultures

who always showed consideration for the vestiges left by their predecessors, Sintra has always expressed itself through cultural tolerance.

It is this cultural tolerance that we must preserve and foster: consideration for the diversity, be it artistic, aesthetic, philosophical or ethnic; consideration for the environment, in the search for a peaceful cohabitation of Man and Nature; consideration for the monuments that are the best reflection of the tolerance between cultures, knowing that our wealth and way of life reside precisely in those diversified and pluralistic roots.

The magic of the natural scenery and the memory of Man's passage through Sintra, the mysterious mists, the play of water and greenery, result in a unique poetic ambiance that makes Sintra a place that inspires art. And in order to enhance the inspirational capacity of the place, Sintra is nowadays the setting for several events where art merges with the landscape. One case in point is the Sintra Music Festival that takes classical music to open air spaces, creating an intimate and reciprocal relationship between the artist, the public and nature.

Along the same line, but linking music to choreography, there are the Ballet Evenings in the magnificent setting of the Seteais Gardens, a mixture of magic, colour and movement in which we transcend to the world of dreams.

There are also other events that take place in Sintra, that give life to a place full of memories, transforming it into a space of live culture: historical recreations, painting, sculpture, handicrafts, photography exhibitions, and the Theatre Festival that has greatly encouraged the art of acting in our area; as well as congresses, seminars and conferences that make Sintra one of the most lively places from the cultural point of view.

For all this, the pure air, the hospitality of the people, the healthy Atlantic beaches, and the lively and plenteous culture, Sintra still is, as was considered by Robert Southey at the end of the 18th century, are the most blessed place of all the inhabitable world.
