Visit the village that enchanted kings and inspired poets

Do you want to visit the village of Sintra, which enchanted kings and inspired poets, who inloves those who go there? Come with me on this full day private tour and I'll prove to you that it's true.

We will leave Lisbon, directly to Sintra. Once we arrive, there are several places that we can visit in this Fantastic Village.
I propose on this trip that we visit some of them, in the Vila and on the shore

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

We can also visit the Cabo da Roca, the most western point of Europe, and the fantastic Atlantic coast that bathes the Sintra region.


We leave Lisbon in the morning and drive to Sintra, the city of the queens.

We can start by visiting the National Palace and then taste the traditional Sintra pastry.

Next we will visit the enchanted Palace of Pena and the Castle of the Moors, one the most symbolic castles of Portugal.

At the end of the day, we will still have time to visit Cape of the Rock, the westernmost place in Europe, where we can contemplate the sun disappearing in the wild Atlantic before we return to Lisbon, driving along the coast and the Tagus River.
