Stop at Cabo da Roca formerly known as the "end of the world" in the old days.
Guincho dunes and natural park Sintra/Cascais

Itinerary

● Visit to the Queluz Palace.
The National Palace of Queluz is one of the leading examples of the rococo and neoclassical architectural styles from the second half of the eighteenth century in Portugal.
The residence was initially designed as a summer house and thus a favoured place for the royal family's leisure and entertainment but which became their permanent home from 1794.
Visit to the gardens.

● Visit to the imposing Mafra convent. Mafra is the largest Baroque building in Portugal and larger than the Escorial, near Madrid, with 4700 windows and doors, a carillon with 114 bells.
Remembrance of the golden age of Portugal

● Azenhas do Mar. . . True masterpiece of popular architecture, this village has the shape of a crib with several ledges up the hill. Almost every house is painted in white and the village has a small bay, where an ocean pool was built.
We will drive along the Sintra mountain to:

● Cabo da Roca, europe's most western point.

● Guincho dunes and the natural park Sintra/Cascais.

A Recent Review of this tour

If we could give this tour 10 stars, we would. Just an excellent day seeing the Palace of Queluz and the Mafra Palace. And we would give Paulo a 50 star rating for his knowledge of the two sites and an overview of the history of Portugal. You can certainly see the most popular sites in and around Lisbon and wait in long lines, but consider seeing Queluz and Mafra and you will see two stunning palaces and have the entire place almost to yourself. No crowds or difficulty finding a place to park!
