    Nice tips about Sintra here. Thank you for helping us (without knowing it) to plan our trip at the beginning of April. Is it enough one day to see at least the most important spots in Sintra... with a 7-8 yrs old boy?

    It is a long time since I left my first comment on your Sintra page. I have recently heard that Hotel Netto is still there but in an even worse condition now and that many other lovely buildings are slipping into ruin.How very sad!I hope you are well - and the family too. Lovely pictures of a beautiful place. I wonder if the poor old Hotel Nettto is still standing? Were I a rich woman I would have restored it for its history and charm....(Nov 2008)

    Love the term "Green Sintra" to describe this beautiful city. Enjoyed hearing your insights about the Multiple styles of the one palace. Found "Initiation well" fascinating. Brilliant photographs.
