Day trip to Sintra and Obidos

During this tour, you will discover the magic of Portuguese castles from the medieval to the romanticism period. Sintra is the starting point of this tour. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the capital of romanticism, just 16 miles from Lisbon, Sintra has housed the royal family’s summer palaces since the 14th century. You will have the opportunity to visit one of these royal Palaces of Sintra. If you have a sweet tooth you must taste the traditional pastries.

One hundred km north of Sintra, our tour will reach Obidos, a charming medieval village within defense walls. Here you can taste the typical liqueur of the region, The “Ginja”, served in a chocolate cup. Obidos is the best example of medieval cities in Portugal. As we enter its walls, we go back in time, as we walk the ancient stone alleys, facing houses with their white-painted secular facades, the ever-active trade and the countless churches built over the centuries.

    Stop At: Sintra, Sintra, Sintra Municipality, Lisbon District, Central Portugal

    Sintra is without a doubt one of the most extraordinary places in Portugal. Its microclimate transforms this small town situated on the slopes of the mountain range “Serra de Sintra” and next to the Atlantic into a major attraction for visitors who go there to admire its famous castles and palaces or simply taste the traditional food, pastries and sweets. And let’s not forget the souvenir shops selling typical local items. We will stop in the historic center where you will have time to try the famous “travesseiros” and “queijadas” in the Piriquita Pastry Shop and explore the narrow streets of the most romantic town in Portugal. Visit one of these palaces: National Palace of Sintra, National Palace of Pena, Quinta da Regaleira, Palace of Monserrate.(Optional - entrance fees apply)

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Obidos Village, Obidos Portugal

    The town of Obidos is an ancient Roman city that continued flourishing even after the fall of the empire due to the huge commercial activity through the sea port. During the Middle Ages, a wall was built around it after being conquered by the first king of Portugal, Afonso I. Obidos is the best example of a medieval village in Portugal. We go back in time as we walk through this walled town, with its narrow cobblestone alleys, houses with secular facades painted in white, a lively shopping area, and a number of churches that were built throughout the centuries. We get the sensation of the battles fought here for every square foot of land. We won’t leave without tasting the famous “Ginga de Obidos”, a local sweet liquor served on a small chocolate cup.
