Discover the beauty of Sintra, the coast and Cascais during this tour.
Sintra is located just 30 minutes northwest of Lisbon on the magical mountain of the moon that spreads out to the coast.
Because of its microclimate it has always been the perfect hideaway for the court and the royal family. The lush vegetation makes a nice contrast with the colours of the buildings.
Here we can see many species of exotic trees coming from different parts of the world.
It is a town full of palaces, fine residences and history.
The westernmost point of continental Europe offers spectacular views of the coast.
Cascais is a very charming sea resort where the kings enjoyde spending the late summer but it was during the time of World War II a refuge place for statesmen, kings without a throne, nobel families and spies.
Let's enjoy the views of the coast as we return to Lisbon.
