Long Description:
Sintra and her beautiful landscape are filled with new and ancient stories and bizarre things.
A somewhat recurrent one when hiking the local woods are to find gifts to the spirits and so.
There are several places where is likely that we will stumble upon bowls with candles, pieces of chicken, flowers, and other stuff.
This coordinates takes us to a place where it will be hard to miss one or two of these kind of things.

In the provided website it can be seen a presentation of several of those gifts and rituals.
From there "Even today, the Serra de Sintra is the scene of rituals, many of them macabre, where eyewitnesses claim to have seen the corpses of tortured animals, the strangest ways."
