Parques de Sintra.
The project in Portugal had a special character, as many exigencies needed to be considered. The cable crane was installed for the restoration of the Moorish castle in Sintra. As the castle is located in a highly touristic national park, several topics needed to be considered – among others, the whole installation of the cableway needed to be low-noisy and the track of the cable crane had to be above the trees due to environmental determinations in the national park.
