Palácio Nacional de Sintra

Palácio Nacional de Sintra Largo Rainha Dona Amélia Portugal. The thousand-year-old history of the Palace of the Town of Sintra began during the Muslim occupation of the Iberian Peninsula. Already mentioned in texts from the 11th century, the original Moorish Palace became the property of the Portuguese Crown after the conquest of the city of Lisbon by Afonso Henriques, the first King of Portugal, in 1147. It was first subjected to alteration work in 1281, in the reign of King Dinis, and new extensions were later added to the building over time, in the reigns of the kings Dinis, João I and Manuel I, although it has largely maintained its present-day outline since the mid-16th century. The vertical arrangement of its spaces, adapting to the nature of the terrain; the intimate organisation of the interior courtyards, outdoor spaces in which one can hear the sound of running water; the windows with their surmounted arches; and the walls covered in glazed tiles with rich geometrical patterns, are all features that underline the Moorish links of the craftsmen who built and embellished the Palace. A história milenar do Paço da Vila de Sintra começa durante o domínio muçulmano na Península Ibérica. Já referido no século XI, o primitivo palácio mouro - propriedade da Coroa portuguesa a partir da conquista de Lisboa por D. Afonso Henriques (1147), 1º Rei de Portugal - é intervencionado pela primeira vez em 1281, no reinado de D. Dinis. Novos corpos construtivos são acrescentados ao longo do tempo, sob os reinados de D. Dinis, D. João I e D. Manuel I, mantendo a sua silhueta desde meados do século XVI.A disposição dos espaços em altura, adaptando-se ao terreno; a organização intimista dos pátios interiores a céu aberto, onde se ouve a água a correr; as suas janelas com arcos ultrapassados; e os revestimentos azulejares de ricos padrões geométricos, evidenciam a ligação mourisca dos artífices que edificaram e embelezaram o Palácio. www.parquesdesintra.pt
