    Stop At: Centro Historico de Sintra, Sintra 2710-616 Portugal

    Pedonal tour guided by the old Sintra streets.
    A beautiful town at the foot of the mountain range of the same name, its unique characteristics have led UNESCO to classify it as a World heritage site. It was even necessary to create a special category for the purpose - that of "cultural landscape" - taking into account its natural riches as well as the historic buildings in the town and mountains. Endowed with luxuriant vegetation, the mountains are part of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Park and National Palace of Pena, Estrada da Pena, Sintra 2710-609 Portugal

    Guided Tour
    The fantastic Palácio da Pena is one of the best examples of 19th-century Romantic revivalism in Portugal.

    Situated at the top of the Monte da Pena, the palace was built on the site of an old monastery belonging to the Order of St. Jerome. It was the fruit of the imagination of Dom Fernando of Saxe Coburg-Gotha, who married the queen Dona Maria II in 1836. After falling in love with Sintra, he decided to buy the convent and the surrounding land to build a summer palace for the royal family.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Chalet da Condessa D’Edla, Estrada da Pena, Sintra 2710-609 Portugal

    Guided tour.
    It preserves the memory of one of the great love stories of Portuguese history and is included in the visitor route of the monumental complex of the Pena Park, in the Serra de Sintra, the first Cultural Landscape classified as Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

    It was built according to the model of alpine chalets in vogue in Europe in the second half of the nineteenth century by the king consort D. Fernando II for the Countess of Edla, a classical singer with whom he fell and love and would marry in a second marriage in 1869, 16 years after the death of Queen D. Maria II.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Vila Sassetti, Estrada da Pena, Sintra 2710-609 Portugal

    Sight seeing

    Stop At: Farol do cabo da Roca, Estrada do Cabo da Roca, Sintra 2705-001 Portugal

    Located at latitude 38º 47´north and longitude 9º 30´west, Cabo da Roca is an important coordinate for those sailing along the coast, as it is the most westerly point of mainland Europe, a fact borne out by the certificates that visitors take away as a souvenir.
    Around 150 metres above the sea, here you can have a panoramic view over the Serra de Sintra and the coast, which makes it worth the visit.


    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Palacio Nacional e Jardins de Queluz, Queluz Portugal

    The Palace of Queluz and its gardens, represents one of the finest examples of late 18th-century Portuguese architecture.
    Built at the orders of Pedro III, the husband of D. Maria I (1734-1816), and used as a royal residence, this palace is one of the finest examples of Portuguese architecture in the late 18C.
    It has been further enriched by an important museum of decorative art, whose collections mostly belonged to the royal family and are exhibited in an appropriate setting. Many of the rooms are decorated in the rocaille style, such as the superb Throne Room, its walls lined with mirrors and magnificent carved gilded woodwork.
    The surrounding gardens are embellished with fountains and ornamental ponds, where sparkling water spouts forth from mythological figures. Particularly impressive is the group of sculptures around the Neptune Basin.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Santuario da Peninha, N247, Sintra 2705-000 Portugal

    The present chapel dates from the eighteenth century, the period in which a hermit sought refuge here. Several years later work was carried out on the site of a former chapel, where according to local legend, the Virgin Mary had appeared in the sixteenth century. The pulpit includes various inscriptions made by pilgrims.
    The high altar has a Barroque decorated panel with spiral columns and the walls covered in a Florentine mosaic. The Chapel, dating from the end of the seventeenth century is panelled with illustrated blue and white eighteenth-century azulejo tiles.
    A small castle-shaped palace in the Romantic revivalist style, built in 1918, is located next to the chapel.
