Day 7: On the Road in Sintra

IMG_7684

The picturesque town of Sintra, has long been a sanctuary for royalty and is known for their many fairy-tale castles and colorful palaces from the Romantic period. My favorite is Quinta da Regaleira, with its beautiful palace and extensive grounds filled with little pockets of gardens and secret tunnels.  One of these tunnels lead to a tall spiraling well that was used for secretive initiation rites many years ago.
