If you have a long weekend or, even better, a week to spare, how about visiting somewhere that was the first landscape in Europe to be classified with the status of Cultural Landscape of Human Heritage?   That place is Sintra in Portugal!
Planning a trip to Portugal?    Read about my short break to discover things to do in the Algarve and Lisbon.   I try to get away at least once every couple of months. If I don’t do that I’ll go insane. No really, I’ll literally go mad.
Quinta da Regaleira is one of the magnificent buildings that tower above the historic centre of Sintra, about 30 minutes from Lisbon.
The Moorish Castle, situated atop the Sintra mountains, was a military fort, which was originally constructed during the 8th and 9th century when Portugal was a medieval Islamic state.

Seldom do I travel anywhere in Europe and not hear an English voice, so as I sat, on Tuesday night, in a Lisbon bar, I was transfixed by the scene around me.
