Behind-the-scenes visits

The other side of heritage

Behind-the-scenes visits

This is an innovative program of visits, 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. 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, these visits present contributions from different disciplines such as engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, museology, archaeology, conservation and restoration and biology.


These experiences can be complemented with a special meal, which must be booked in advance.
