"Sintra: A Glorious Eden" evokes the spirit of a magical place, a cool sanctuary for the monarchy from the overwhelming heat of the city of Lisbon, Portugal. The reader is introduced to the historical and literary background to what has become a symbol of Portuguese romanticism at home and abroad.


Sintra is a unique and fantastic place. It is a place to be visited and explored, time and time again, both on account of its magnificent, natural scenery - an alpine setting in the south of Portugal - and its rich history entwined with that of the Portuguese Royal family. "Sintra: A Glorious Eden" evokes the spirit of this magical place, a cool sanctuary for the monarchy from the overwhelming heat of the city of Lisbon. The reader is introduced to the historical and literary background to what has become a symbol of Portuguese romanticism at home and abroad. Meticulously researched in Portugal about this citadel of tremendous historical importance. Fully illustrated with both historical artwork and contemporary photographs. "A Glorious Eden" is how Byron described Sintra, in his opinion the most beautiful place in the world.
