Experience the hidden places (by minivan)
From Lisbon we'll drive towards amazing spots in Sintra, avoiding crowds and tasting the real Portugal. You'll delight your eyes with the white waves of Guincho, seeing from a distance our next stop: Cabo da Roca, the most western point of mainland Europe.
Ather this, the hidden gem of Adraga: it could almost cross your mind that those cliffs were carved to fit perfectly that wild and rugged beach. Close by there is Azenhas do Mar, a picturesque village by the sea with a beautiful pool dug in the cliff, and Colares, a charming little town, famous for being the smallest demarcated wine region in Portugal.
We'll continue through a marvelous road to Sintra and stop at its historical centre to discover a fascinating small town at the foot of the mountain, which unique characteristics have led UNESCO to classify it as world heritage in 1995. Here we'll meet a few more people but it will be worth, no doubt, it just looks purely and unexpectedly lost in time. Time for some local pastries!
Return to Lisbon.

My wife and I were in Lisbon from Sept. 6 - 9, 2018 before going on a Windstar Cruise. We went on a multi-hour tour with Marta C called Sentra: Secrets off the Beaten Path. The day brought us much insight into Portuguese history, the history of Sentra and an opportunity to see other sites close to the ocean as we drove to Sentra on a less traveled route. Marta was an excellent tour guide for us: very knowledgeable, good command of English and easy to talk with as we traveled. We recommend her.
