De Sintra ao Oceano / From Sintra to the Ocean
Because the tram led to a visit and a comment from Malaysia, here is a bilingual post, for a better understanding of the tram's importance to Sintra.
The Sintra Tram
“The Sintra tram is much more than a mere means of transport.It has always been, and continues to be part os recent history os the places it has passed through and of local people´s recollections of their experiences – it all began in the second half of the 19th century, when the railway line first reached Sintra, connecting the town to the capital of kingdom.”

O Eléctrico de Sintra
"O eléctrico de Sintra é muito mais do que um mero meio de transporte. Tudo começou na segunda metade do séc XIX, quando o caminho de ferro chegou a Sintra, ligando-a à capital do Reino. “
