Powerful Places in Sintra: The Magical Mountain of the Moon (Paperback)
Powerful Places in Sintra-The Magical Mountain of the Moon is not your usual guidebook. It is not just about visiting places, it's about experiencing them. Sintra and the surrounding Sintra-Cascais Natural Park are some of the most popular places to visit in Portugal. The region includes romantic 19th-century palaces and parks, a Moorish Castle, the Cork Convent, and Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point in mainland Europe. This guidebook provides you with insider information so you can explore them in depth. It also includes powerful places that are off the beaten path, such as the Fairy Forest, 4,500-year-old megalithic sites, the remains of a Roman temple, an ancient chapel associated with an apparition of the Virgin, mysterious tunnels, and several churches that host unusual festivals. This guidebook provides detailed travel advice, background information, personal accounts, color photos, QR codes, contact information, and website links. It explains about different kinds of powerful places and what makes them powerful. It offers suggestions about how to transform a visit to a tourist attraction into a memorable experience. If you are intrigued by the unusual; if you long to connect more deeply with the places you visit; if you have a nagging feeling that there's more to some places than meets the eye-or is described in superficial tourist information-then this is the travel guide for you.
