Tour highlights

Sintra Village

A charming village located in a Natural Park with castles and grand mansions used as summer houses for the Portuguese royalty. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site, and due to its natural beauty and unique atmosphere, Sintra is the most visited village in Portugal.

Pena Palace

An astonishing fairytale palace located on one of the highest peaks of the Sintra Mountains. Pena Palace was built in the 19th Century by King 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.

Local products and handicrafts

While walking through the historical center, you’ll find yourself surrounded by old houses that have been converted into small shops and bakeries, selling local products, regional pastries, and handicrafts.

Belém

The launching point for the Portuguese discoveries, with significant historical monuments in a beautiful open riverside setting. In Belém, you can visit the iconic Belém Tower, the Discoveries Monument, visit the church of the Jerónimos Monastery and taste the original, world-famous Portuguese custard tart.

Liberty Avenue

Avenida da Liberdade is one of the main avenues of the city of Lisbon, and it connects Restauradores Square with the Marquês de Pombal roundabout. It has wide sidewalks covered in Portuguese pavement and is lined with stores of luxurious brands.

Marquis of Pombal roundabout

In the middle of the roundabout, you’ll see a bronze statue of the Marquis of Pombal in the top, with a lion, a symbol of power, by his side. The Marquis is looking towards the city center, the area of Lisbon that was rebuilt under his direction after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.

Optional experiences and visits

‘Quinta da Regaleira.’

One of the most surprising and mysterious of all Sintra’s monuments. A magical place located on the outskirts of the village. It was built in the first years of the 20th century by Carvalho Monteiro, a man with a vast culture and a great philanthropist.

The Moors Castle

The Moors Castle is a fortification built with granite blocks in the 10th century after the Muslim conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. The outer wall has a pathway from which you can admire a beautiful view of the village, the National Palace of Sintra, the Pena Palace, the natural park, and the Atlantic Ocean.

Cabo da Roca

Considered the most western point of mainland Europe, it’s located on a cliff with more than 140 meters of height, offering you breathtaking views.

Traditional trade area

The main area of interest is Praça do Comércio, one of the largest squares in Europe and, for many centuries, the main entrance of the city of Lisbon. This square is full of terraces and restaurants where you can enjoy the landscape and Lisbon’s pace. To get to the city center, you must go through the Arc de Triomphe and walk along Augusta street.

Alfama

The most traditional and oldest neighborhood of Lisbon composed of a maze of narrow streets, tortuous alleys, and steep flights of stairs. It’s the birthplace of ‘Fado,’ a traditional song of Lisbon classified as World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Alfama is known internationally for its Fado Houses, and the Popular Saints’ Festival held in Lisbon throughout June.
