Pena Palace and Park
Pena Palace and Park

Marvel at Pena Palace, one of the most magnificent and recognisable tourist attractions of Portugal. The palace exemplifies the 19th century Romanticism style of architecture and stands atop a rocky peak, which is the second highest point in Sintra Hills. The Pena Palace richly decorated with Moorish and Manueline motifs. Enjoy panoramic views of the peaceful forests and lush gardens covered by exotic plants and flowers.
The Palace of Pena was designated a National Monument in 1910 and forms part of the Cultural Landscape of Sintra, which has been classified by UNESCO as World Heritage since 1995.

Sintra Historical Center
Sintra Historical Center

Sintra is widely acclaimed as one of Portugal's most beautiful destinations, full of gardens, tiled villas, colorful palaces, and neo-Gothic structures, all surrounded by verdant hills rolling toward the Atlantic Ocean.
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.

Cabo da Roca
Cabo da Roca

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.

Guincho Beach
Guincho Beach

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.

Hell’s mouth
Hell’s mouth

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.

Cascais
Cascais

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.

Estoril
Estoril

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.

Ponctualité, guide très sympathique, excursion à faire absolument. Bémol : le guide n'accompagne pendant les visites et un manque de temps au palais de Pena."

"Des vues, des routes et des villageois incroyables

Ce fut un incontournable de notre séjour à Lisbonne, nous sommes allés à Queluz, un petit village proche de Sintra et où nous avons visité le palais de style rococo de Queluz et ses jardins. Ensuite, nous sommes partis pour la charmante ||ville de Sintra, nous nous serions crus dans un conte de fée lors de la promenade||en ville. Nous nous sommes restaurés sur place, le déjeuner fut tout simplement délicieux. ||Nous nous sommes ensuite dirigés vers le superbe palais de Pena. Pour nous y rendre nous avons dû traverser le parc de Pena et monter jusqu’au sommet de la montagne dans un bus empruntant des rues des plus étroites, ce qui requiert du chauffeur une excellente conduite. Lorsque vous arriverez là, nous vous recommandons d’emprunter le bus jusqu’au sommet et de penser à prendre une veste car il fait frais toute l’année là-haut. Le palais est incroyable et l’architecture du génie à l’état pur. Ça vaut vraiment la peine d’y aller et nous recommandons vivement cette excursion"

"Une expérience merveilleuse

J’ai réservé l’excursion moi-même et j’ai fini avec 7 autres personnes dans un bus très confortable. La visite a été merveilleuse. Notre guide a été sympathique et drôle et très authentique. Bien qu’elle ait probablement expliqué les mêmes choses un million de fois, elle l’a fait avec enthousiasme et était/est amoureuse de son pays. ||||C’était super de voir le Palais de Pena et d’aller ensuite au point le plus occidental de l’Europe, une vue impressionnante ! À Cascais, nous avions du temps pour le dîner et pour profiter du soleil un peu. C’était vraiment une journée extraordinaire. Pour moi, cela ne ressemblait pas du tout à un voyage de 8 heures !"
