Sintra Mountains

Portuguese  Serra De Sintra,  

      mountain range, Lisboa distrito (“district”), western Portugal. It extends about 10 miles (16 km) from the resort of Sintra to the Cape da Roca on the Atlantic Ocean, reaching its highest point (1,736 feet [529 m]) just south of Sintra. The lush vegetation (both Mediterranean and northern European flora) on the mountainsides and a mild climate have made the area famous as a tourist retreat for Lisbon's population.
