Sintra (half day)
One afternoon discovering the charming village of Sintra with its Royal Palace and the unforgettable coast of Cabo da Roca, Cascais and Estoril.
For an unforgettable afternoon, we leave for the village of Sintra (Cultural Landscape by UNESCO), to visit the Royal Palace (Palácio da Vila - closed on Wednesdays replaced by Queluz Palace), a charming spot where the Portuguese Royal Families spent long summers. Its rich collection of glazed tiles (azulejos) and the two conical chimneys of the kitchen’s palace are Sintra’s ex-libris. It‘s also possible to taste the delicious local sweets in the tea-rooms: “Queijadas” and “Travesseiros”.
Then we will drive through Sintra’s range, where its luxuriant and exuberant vegetation is to be seen, arriving at Roca Cape (Cabo da Roca - from 1st March to 31st October), the westernmost point in continental Europe. Along the coast, passing by Guincho beach, spot of windsurfers, by Boca do Inferno, a grotto created by the sea erosion, always with a sea view, enjoying the landscape, until we arrive in the cosmopolitan Cascais, where we take a glimpse over the bay. We return to Lisbon by Estoril, where we can have a panoramic view of the Casino and its gardens.
