  • Why are there so many crows in Lisbon?
    They are everywhere: on the city’s coat of arms, on street lamps, often displayed in bicoloured mosaic on the sidewalks, and even on the municipal garbage cans! According to legend, for centuries the crows were the guardians of the cathedral…
  • A walk in Sintra
    It’s impossible to visit or live in Lisbon without spending a weekend or longer in Sintra and its surrounds, classified as World Heritage of UNESCO in 1995.

To be honest, it's quite hard to find a living soul in the area to ask for directions to the Quinta dos Cozinheiros. But this means that you have plenty of time to enjoy the splendid scenery filled with copses, forests, pastures, fields and vineyards. A calm, restful setting where time seems to have stood still.

  • Focus on the Herdade de Mingorra
    To the south of Beja and about 200 kilometres from Lisbon, Henrique Uva (pre-destined to do this job: his name means grape in Portuguese!) successfully implemented an ambitious project when he created the Herdade de Mingorra in 2004.
