15 to 30 January: temporary closure under the current State of Emergency
This summer, Parques de Sintra is launching a new programme of visits to the parks and palaces under its management, led by people working behind the scenes who unveil the secrets of their day-to-day tasks and allow visitors to discover themes and spaces that aren't usually open to the public. Visits will take place on Saturday mornings throughout July, August and September. They will be guided by experts in different areas from Parques de Sintra, who work on research and on restoration and conservation projects at the heritage sites managed by the company. With contributions from different disciplines such as engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, museology, archaeology, conservation and restoration and biology, these twelve ‘behind-the-scenes visits’ will form part of the regular Parques de Sintra programme and may be booked upon request.
