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."

"ideale manier voor bezoek binnenland

Onze gids Ruí was stipt op tijd aan de pick up. Hij was heel vriendelijk en heel spraakzaam. Hij wist enorm veel te vertellen over de streek en de bezienswaardigheden. Van mij mocht het bezoek aan het paleis iets langer duren zodat we meer tijd hadden om ook de mooie omgeving rond het paleis te bezichtigen."
