  • Explore the colourful monuments of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sintra
  • Cabo da Roca lighthouse, the westernmost point of mainland Europe
  • Discover the atmospheric "moon hills" of Sintra and hilltop Peninha Chapel

Walk through the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, from inland wooded trails to the rugged Atlantic coast, with views over golden sandy beaches before finishing at the seaside town of Cascais. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sintra, renowned for its exquisite palaces, castles, monasteries and lush tropical gardens. Easily accessible from nearby Lisbon, it is clear to see why it was a popular sanctuary for Portuguese nobility between the 15th and 19th centuries. Feast on fresh seafood and Colares wine along the way, whilst staying overnight in boutique hotels and charming quinta-style guesthouses, where you'll receive a warm Portuguese welcome.
