Having worked in at Scala in Milan, Manini’s work is a mixture of Gothic, Manueline and Renaissance with sprouts turrets and towers and impressive Art Nouveau tiles.

Conquered in 1147 by Afonso Henriques for the Christians, the Castle was a major victory in the reconquest of Portugal. Today the Castle is in ruins, although it was restored in mid- nineteenth century, and offers spectacular views to its visitors from Ponte 25 de Abril to Arrabida, Cascais to Cabo da Rocha, Peniche and the Berlenga islands.
Once the royal town of the country, it now deservedly holds UNESCO world heritage status and attracts hordes of visitors throughout the year. Sintra has unusual geography: hills, forests, ocean, and its subsequent climate. Monuments and nature get together in one of the most perfect combinations.
The Palacio da Pena is an extravagant yet relatively modern building. The outside evokes Disney in that its pink and yellow towers and domes boast drawbridges, sculptures and detail that one can only imagine exist in fantasy.
