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. According to the time, Quinta da Regaleira and Monserrate, are also nice places to visit.
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.

Rui drove us to Sintra in a comfortable car. He did not come into any of the palaces with us, so if you are looking for a skip the line tour where an informed guide takes you through, this in NOT the right one for you. This tour was more like having a friendly driver/companion who knows the area well. After Sintra, he took us to see his own weekend house and then also drove us through Cascais and Estoril on the way back to Lisbon. He was good company and we liked the flexibility.
