We met at Praca de Luis Camoes where the party was divided into groups according to the language they had booked. We went to the station (Rossio) together and took a train to Sintra (ca. 40 minutes). There we had our first stop to have queijadas, coffee or anything else that needed to be done. We proceeded to the town hall and received the first talk on everything concerning the design of the buidling. We then went around town, the guide told us a lot about our surroundings and the history of the place. The last stop was Quinta de Regaleira after a short lunch break where we learned a lot about free masonry and the architectural design of the park. After a (a bit rushed) tour through the main building, our guide gave us tips as to what we could do in Sintra after his tour and he let us off after explaining how to get back to the station. The entrance for Regaleira was included in the price of the tour, lunch was not.

Sintra is beautiful, our guide led us in a funny and informative way. If you wanted you could go on looking alone but there is not enough time for everything as there is a lot to see.
