Sintra for nature and culture lovers
Sintra is set on a mountain range considered sacred for thousands of years. It was known as the 'Mountain of the moon' and in this tour, I will help you understand why.
We will immerse ourselves in nature, from the mountain to the sea. We will get to know picturesque coastal villages, breathtaking beaches and astonishing viewpoints.
You will know more about one of the rarest wines in Europe and have lunch overlooking the Atlantic ocean.
Even if the crowds often visit Sintra, we will discover some spots that despite their beauty and deep history are still away from the beaten track, like the mysterious Capuchos Convent.
If you feel like hiking, we can explore the Pena Park and find out that it is embedded with magic, full of stories and viewpoints to unveil.
So if you are a nature lover but also want to get immersed in the unique culture of the 'Mountain of the moon', you should book this tour.
