Explore World Heritage Site Sintra staying in historical Lawrences Hotel. Dating back to 1764, the Hotel Lawrences lays claim to being the oldest hotel in the Iberian Peninsula and second oldest in the world, so it certainly comes with a rich history; men such as Lord Byron (here he wrote part of the Child Heritage Pilgrimage) and William Beckford, have all stayed here. Following a long period of neglect, the present owners, Jan & Coreen Bos, purchased the Sintra property in complete ruins yet have managed to restore it to its former glory.
In fact, over the years they have been able to buy a number of the building’s original pieces and antiques, the interior decoration was based on original photographs and undertaken by the owners wife, Corcen Bos. In fact, some of the furniture pieces you'll find at the Lawrences Hotel are exacts copies of the hotel’s original tables and chairs. The end result is now a fine five star hotel in the heart of Sintra with 16 individually decorated rooms (5 of them suites) that still manages to feel more like a home from home rather than a hotel: as was the declared aim of the owners when they started out.

Absolutely lovely hotel, in a great location in Sintra. The staff are extremely helpful and the Portuguese tarts at breakfast are to die for!
