This is the village where Lua & Pine is located. It belongs to the county of São João das Lampas, Sintra. It is a rustic village, with a small population. Most of the houses are surrounded by vegetable gardens, big sheds, agricultural machines, mills, and gravel roads, which make their rural characteristics stand out.

Dos – Assafora has some places of interest, such as the village pound, the pine forest. Some of the village mills and fountains are still in good condition and are always a good excuse if you fancy a quick walk around the area. For longer walks, you have some pleasant hiking trails that run through the countryside surrounding the mountain village of Assafora. Here is a link for you to explore some hiking trails.  Click Here
