Hello, my name is Michael, I am a Sintra local. Know all the ins and outs of this magical place. I am a certified artist, having concluded my Bachelor degree at The British University of Prague, Czech Republic in 2017 in Fine Arts & Media. My former Art History teacher from high school was a Freemason herself and followed us through all the symbology and meanings from Regaleira's Architecture. I had a great startup to be honest.
