So much beauty to behold… I never made the high points in Sintra. I plan on doing it next time I come to Portugal.

Here is my little collection my vacation to Portugal in 2018 and 2019

I think you’ll like it. The peak is called Cruz Alta (High Cross) and you can reach it through the park near Palácio da Pena, called Parque da Pena. Not a lot of room up there and some boulders to climb (nothing ambitious, but requires some caution), but the view is great on a clear day.

@matthias.wintzer, some of those photos are pretty amazing. The first one is my favorite, I think. I really like that work. I recognize some, but not all of those places, so if you feel like giving us a tour and naming some of those spots… :stuck_out_tongue:

Ahah!

You’re a great photographer, @stephencanthony. Lots of beautiful photos of Lisbon, Coimbra and Porto. I especially like how you capture and frame all the people in your shots.

Oh, I’ve been there! It’s close to Paderne, in Algarve. There’s a restaurant somewhere in there where I had the best robalo (sea bass) ever. We made as much fun of the name of the place as you did, haha.
