What to Expect
This private full-day tour has its focus on the historic monuments of Sintra and the spectacular natural beauty of the surrounding area. The suggested itinerary can be modified, however, to reflect your interests, as the tour is fully customizable.

Typically you’d make your first stop at the 18th-century Queluz National Palace, before heading to historical Sintra town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

See Sintra National Palace, located in the center of Sintra. The initial building was a Moorish palace, but profound architectural modifications were made during the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries, altering the external appearance.

Situated atop a hill in Sintra, the Romanticist Pena National Palace was built in the middle of the 19th century. Sintra Moorish Castle, a fortress dating to the 9th century, was built by the Moors during their occupation of the area. Its location provides for magnificent views over Sintra and the ocean.

The estate of Quinta da Regaleira features a palace, a chapel, and gardens with grottos, wells and subterranean areas. Symbolism and mythology are hallmarks of the palace, making Regaleira one of the most esoteric mansions in Portugal.

Visit the neoclassical Seteais Palace dating from the 18th century. The palace has been converted to a luxury hotel. Experience the romantic environment of Monserrate Park, where exotic plants grow along with the local flora. Today this is the site of an important botanical museum.

The tour continues on to the Cabo da Roca headland, the westernmost point in continental Europe, on a road that passes through a unique natural landscape.

You’ll finally reach the coastal town of Cascais, passing through Guincho and enjoying views of the beaches, Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, and the Atlantic Ocean.
