Abstract

In 1790-1791, the British sculptor Anne Seymour Damer (1749-
1828) travels to Lisbon for health reasons. Damer describes the picturesque city and its environs in several letters to her friends back
home, and she starts her novel Belmour (1801) in the Portuguese capital. This article analyses the realistic representation of Lisbon (as a
place of recovery) and Sintra (as a space of evasion and sentimental
learning) – through themes and narrative strategies such as religion,
health recovery, the cultural Other and ethnographic and historical
landscapes – in both the author’s letters and novel, which echo several contemporary British travel narratives about Portugal.
