  1. according to history, this was purely a ‘quinta’ with moorish influence added much later by a european!!

  2. And it’s not abandoned… but because it’s a protected area it’s hard to rebuild without the Sintra’s municipal council permission, it has to follow a lot of architectural rules.

    • I imagine so, I guess I was using artistic licence! I was there earlier this year again and I have to say it looks even worse than it did in this photos, tragic really.
