Discover this collection of thousands of artefacts of huge scientific and material value at the Museu de História Natural de Sintra right in the centre of the old town.
When you think of Sintra, you probably associate it with romantic palaces, exuberant gardens or cakes (travesseiros or queijadas) rather than the world’s only existing example of a flying reptile. The Braseodactylus sp is one of the stars of this collection of thousands of exhibits of huge scientific and material value in the Museu de História Natural de Sintra, right in the centre of the old town. Enjoy a simulation of the Big Bang and take a quick trip back in time to accompany the evolution of life on earth, from the Pre-Cambric to the Quaternary age. Let the dinosaurs and their eggs discovered in the Gobi Desert in China impress you, a vision that your children – and your inner child – will love.
