Visit Sintra Village Historical Center with free time to taste the traditional "Travesseiros de Sintra"
The Historical Village of Sintra is one of the most known and romantic Portuguese villages. Due to its palaces, woods and the fog typical of its mountains, Sintra has become a magical place with countless legends to tell.
You will have free time to see this beautiful village and also the small and charming traditional shops, antique shops, restaurants and historic cafes but above all the landscape that has already inspired countless artists, writers and kings.
One of the most marvelous views in whole Portugal – the westernmost point of Continental Europe “Cabo da Roca”. We will pass through the wonderful Sintra National Park until arriving at Cabo da Roca, the most western point of continental Europe that was mentioned by our acclaimed Luís de Camões as the place "Where the earth ends and the sea begins." It is a place of natural beauty, with imposing cliffs of 150 meters high.
A few centuries ago, there was a fort that played an important role in the defense of Lisbon and the third oldest lighthouse on the Portuguese coast is still here in operation. Here the landscape is breathtaking and absolute bliss for photography lovers.
Part of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, Guincho Beach is endowed with a surrounding landscape of great beauty in which the white sand dunes contrast with the deep tones of the Serra de Sintra hills, looming in the background.
Given both its strong winds and waves, the Beach attracts a great following among bodyboarders and surfers. Throughout summer, there is generally a good northerly wind ensuring Guincho is excellent for windsurfing.
The next stop is absolutely beautiful rock wall with a very dramatic name – Mouth of Hell (Boca do Inferno). This breathtaking chasm located on a cliff seashore close to Cascais will engage you with crashing waves.
It is believed this place used to be a cave that over time and by the force of the sea relented and gave rise to the scenario as it is known today. Currently, Boca do Inferno is an open cavity, with a sort of arch where it enters the seawater.
In days of rough waters it is possible to hear the sound of water hitting the rocks, such a unique sound that makes an analogy to the location´s name. Arriving at Boca do Inferno is possible to contemplate the beauty of the place from the top, however, there is also a path that leads to the other side of the “arc” of the cavity, where the water enters.
After viewing the landscape of Mouth of Hell we will stop at the fishing village –Cascais with its lovely harbor full of small fishing boats. This town in the 19th century became a favorite summer destination of the European aristocracy and noble families for its idyllic location and a pleasant climate. Stop in the elegant resort town of Cascais, a once quiet fishing village that was discovered by the European nobility for its idyllic setting, and became a favorite destination for the international jet set thereafter. Stroll along the harbor, before transferring back to Lisbon.
The drive will take you along the Marginal Avenue, a winding waterfront road with sweeping views of the Tagus River and the Atlantic Ocean and panoramic view over Casino Estoril. Estoril has one of the most beautiful leisure areas by the sea with fine sand beaches and crystal clear water. Along the coast we find besides an extensive beach, Casino Estoril, the largest casino in Europe but also where the famous secret agent, James Bond, was conceived. Portugal was a neutral country in the 2nd World War, which attracted people from the spy networks on both sides of the coin.
