Scenes of Sintra

Sintra just to the West of Lisbon is UNESCO World Heritage listed. Its history is also the history of humans in Europe. Remnants date to the Bronze age, Paleolithic and Neolithic periods. It was occupied by the Romans in the 1st and second century BC to the 5th Century AD and subsequently the Moors who build the Medieval Castle on the Hill - Castelo dos Mouros. The Christian occupation dates from the 9th Century.
The few pictures I managed to cram into the collage barely do it justice. They are ones I like for a range of reasons.
These are all stunning photos of what looks like an amazing place. Being in an area with that much history must be so fascinating.
