Private Night Walk: Sintra, Dreams in the Woods







PAY ONLY YOUR GROUP Premium Sensation


You'll enjoy a night walk (around 6 kilometres in 4 hours) around Sintra's village, including a short incursion into the dark of the mountain, while accompanied by an Historian who will tell you dazzling tales hidden in Sintra's History.

Near Sintra's Historic Centre - where the meeting point is - you'll find yourself in a street, whilst also in the middle of a hill. We will walk around the edge of the mountain, between old parts of the Village and the hills, with a few stops along the way, where you will see in the distance some monuments (the old Royal Palace, Pena Palace, Sintra's Castle (Moorish Castle), among others), and you'll hear about how they were in the past, as well as some unusual Hystorical tales conveyed to you by Sintra's foremost history researcher, the Historian Miguel Boim.

The second part of the walk will take you on a short incursion in the dark of the mountain. The terrain will be mostly regular, with the exception of some parts in which a few steps will require climbing. Nothing extraordinary for people with no mobility impairments. Overall, the effort implied in the whole night walk is equivalent to a whole afternoon strolling in a touristic place.

This second part will include some stops, where you'll hear about some of History's most curious and least known intriguing stories. In some parts you'll walk in the dark night, with unique views along the way.
In what you have dreamt today - remembered or already forgot - you have fulfilled what many of the figures of our History have also experienced: the ever present magic in the strange occurrences of life, and also the bizarre, which through fear or false wonder, seems to have been cast under a spell.

In this night walk in Sintra, prepare yourself to hear about what some figures of the past have dreamt here, how their dreams have spawned monuments, what sound and sight they experienced in the Mountains and in the shore, and what fears arose from what they heard in the night.

The walk will have around 6 kilometres (in around 4 hours) mostly in regular terrain. The effort implied is equivalent to spending a whole afternoon strolling around Sintra, with its ups and downs.

Needless to say you may feel at will to ask any question you may have related to Sintra's History.

We will end our night walk at Sintra's Historic Centre, where you'll then have the opportunity to experience its nocturnal tranquility.
