For those who wish to spend a pleasant day in the exceptional town of Sintra, we have prepared a journey full of history, legends, palaces and beautiful landscapes. We will start with the Palácio da Pena (Pena Palace), commissioned by King Ferdinand II, an artist himself. From the color of the walls to the number of stairways, all elements make of this palace one of the most beautiful in the world. Following this visit, among oaks and cypresses, we will be heading towards Sintra’s town center, where the kings and queens of Portugal all wished to settle their residence.
Still in Sintra, you will fall in love with one of most the enigmatic and symbolic estates in the World: the Quinta da Regaleira (Estate of Regaleira). This place, filled with secrets, will promise to make you appreciate literature and arts in a very different way. We will also have time to stop at finisterra, the westernmost point in Continental Europe, with a cliff of 460 feet of height at the Cabo da Roca (Roca Cape). Afterwards, we will stop at Cascais and Estoril by taking one of the loveliest roads in Europe, where we will appreciate ancient fortresses and crystal clear waters. Amongst willows and magnolias, the mountain and the sea, this promises to be a real enchanted journey.
For centuries, the inhabitants of Sintra believed the water of the mountain had magical and healing properties?
