The special spots and the Sintra shore; Cabo da Roca and Cascais


It is never enough time to enjoy Sintra, but I will try to share with you some of the most special places in the vila, in the mountains and in the shore.

Departing from Lisbon, we will go directly to Sintra, where we can find amazing places and monuments.

In this trip, I propose that we visit one of the ones listed above

Pena Palace and gardens
Fascinating fairytale palace, located on one of the highest peaks of the Sintra mountain range

Castle of the Moors
8th century fortress, located at the top of the hill surrounded by a landscape of extraordinary natural beauty.

National Palace of Sintra - Palácio da Vila
It was one of the Royal Palaces and presents characteristics of medieval architecture, Arab, Gothic, Manueline, Renaissance and romantic. It is an extraordinary blend

After it, we will visit the Cabo da Roca, the most western point of Europe, and the fantastic beaches along Sintra's coast

Lunch is when you want; we will adjust our route so you feel confortable during the trip.

Itinerary

We will leave Lisbon and go directly to Sintra, where we can visit one of the monuments of this amazing town, taste the city's traditional pastry and take a peek in chalets and monuments, and also the Palace da Pena and the Castle of the Moors at the top of the mountain.

We will then leave for the countryside and to the shore, where cliffs and spectacular small beaches carved in the rocks are waiting for us. Adraga Beach, Aguda Beach, Azenhas do Mar, and Praia das Maçãs are some of the ones we can visit.

Here, we have 2 options:
We can visit them by sea or by land.
If by sea, we will take a boat at Cascais or Ericeira after lunch, and end at the same place before returning to Lisbon.

If by land, we will end the itinerary at Cape of Roca, the westernmost place in Europe and then, on the way back to Lisbon, we may also visit Cascais, a beautiful village in the end of the Tagus river mouth, with very nice beaches and the best ice cream in Portugal!

Just let me know what you would prefer to do!
