This beautiful town along the coast a short distance from Lisbon is filled with history and sightseeing opportunities at every turn. Whether as part of a longer stay in Portugal or a destination in its own right, it will keep you busy with things to see.
What to Expect
On this private half-day Sintra and Cascais tour, discover the whimsical architecture of the town center and Sintra landscapes.
Following a pick-up from your hotel in Lisbon, transfer by private vehicle to Sintra city center, where you will have some time to explore the old streets of Sintra. Later see the extravagant Pena Palace perched on a rock that overlooks the coastline of Lisbon. Marvel at its mix of Moorish and Manueline motifs. Enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding woods. Hear the romantic story of the palace and feel like a member of the Portuguese Royal Family.
Afterwards, it is time to see Cabo da Roca, continental Europe’s westernmost point. Get a souvenir certificate inscribed with the words "Where the Land Ends and the Sea Begins" by Camões. Pass the stunning beaches of Cascais, including Praia do Guincho, the most scenic beach on the Lisbon coastline.
En route to Cascais, experience the mystery of the "Devil's Mouth” grotto created by the crashing of the waves on the rocky bluff. If there is some time, you will stop in the elegant resort town of Cascais, a quiet fishing village that was discovered by the European nobility for its idyllic setting and became a favorite destination for the international jet set thereafter. Drive back to Lisbon along the Atlantic coast.
