Parques De Sintra Vila Sassetti Jardim Vila Sassetti

Victor Carlos Sassetti (1848-1936), the owner of Hotel Braganza, in Lisbon, and Hotel Victor, in Sintra, was the original owner of the lands on which the Villa Sassetti today stands.

 

The project’s design was commissioned from a friend, the architect and scenographer Luigi Manini (18481936).

 

The main building, a summer house inspired on the castles of Lombardy, is striking with its three-storey central circular tower from which extend other wings of variable geometric shapes, employing Sintra granite as the main external finishing material.
