A favourite place of mine. 30 km along the coast from Lisbon and about 15 km from where I live.
It has a long history, from Roman times and before, and I believe the water mills were operated by Moors. It is not far from a beach called "Apple Beach" Praia das macas". The river is called Apple river for some forgotten reason.
It is very near Sintra and the hills ( now called Serra da Sintra) were called in Roman times "Mountains of the Moon". This view was taken in winter and the salt water swimming pool is empty and probably a good many of the houses which are used mainly as summer holidays homes although nowadays many people choose to live there permanently. The actual water mill can't be seen here, but a wheel is at the bottom right just out of the picture. The mill stones are now part of the decoration. A delightful and unusual place to visit. Well worth the windy road and beautiful views from the road along the coast or just as beautiful is the inland route through the ancient and very beautiful city of Sintra with two castles and mansions and the small hotel where the poet Byron stayed and called Sintra a "Garden of Eden".
