25km away from Lisbon we discover the village of Sintra. A romantic village with a mystical aura and unrivalled architecture.
A UNESCO heritage site since 1995, it is famous for being the portion of land with more palaces in such a small territory throughout Portugal.
For many years it was visited by all kinds of people, from all social classes.
It inspired poets and kings and it even has its unique pastry, known for the pillow cookies or (Travesseiros) and Queijadas of Sintra.
Its monuments are romantic and built on top of the ruins of other palaces that once existed there, reflecting the pure romantic style that is so characteristic.

We had a great day in Sintra and on the Portugal coast with Miguel. Miguel was friendly and well organized. Very timely. We could tell he cared deeply about his guests' experience. The Pena Castle was unique but VERY crowded. I would recommend skipping the inside tour and just tour the gardens and lakes. Otherwise, too much time is spent in line. Lunch was delicious with fresh fish! Thank you Miguel for a wonderful day. Your country is so very nice and so are you!
