Demons and wizzards are home tonight

This a castle in Sintra, a masonic and esoteric hotspot now turned into a museum. Sintra itself is the capital of Romanticism in Europe, a place that poet Lord Byron once described as a "Glorious Eden". It really is a powerful place, a magic forested mountain full of mysteries, always enshrouded in mist and with an unreal atmosphere. I know, because I live here.
