Convent of Mafra and National Palace of Mafra, the largest Palace in Portugal - Fishing and surf village of Ericeira


We will go firstly from Lisbon to Mafra and visit the Palace and Convent of Mafra made in a stunning Baroque style that inspired the Portuguese Nobel Prize of Literature José Saramago.
This is the biggest palace in Portugal with 4500 windows and doors, 880 rooms and 96 bells and 6 Pipe Organs, the biggest ensemble in Europe - meant to be played together.

From here we can go to a village where a town was made in miniature.

Then, we will proceed to Ericeira, a well known city for its fishermen, surfing beaches and uniqueness. Best place for fresh fish and seafood! But I also have an off the beaten road traditional restaurant in Mafra.

Itinerary

- Mafra's National Palace + Monastery + Royal Basilica (not included)
- Sobreiro - miniature town
