A charming village, located in a Natural Park with castles and grand mansions used as summer houses by the Portuguese royalty.

A summer palace constructed in the 19th Century by Kind consort Ferdinand II of Portugal. He turned a 16th Century monastery ruins into one of the most eclectic palaces in Europe by blending different types of Gothic, Egyptian, Moorish and Renaissance elements to it. Around the palace he created a park where he planted different exotic species of trees from all over the world. An astonishing fairytale palace located on one of the highest peaks of the Sintra mountain range.
The wine region of Colares was defined in 1908, becoming the second oldest demarcated region in the country. The type of soil, the native grape varieties, the traditional planting practices of the vineyards, the humid climate and the proximity of the sea with very strong sea winds, give the wine unique characteristics.
