Sintra and Estoril Coastline

Half day tour
Per person: 45,00 €

Sintra, located NW of Lisbon, is a delightful small town, full of historical sites whose roots go back to the Arab occupation in the 12th century.

Later on, Sintra was a summer retreat for the Portuguese Royal families and Nobels, and due to its romantic setting, it was immortalized by the British poet Lord Byron, as the “Little Eden”.

Our tour will visit its historical centre and the National Palace, built over a former Moorish palace. From this area, one can admire the many manor houses and see the medieval castle built up on top of the mountain.

Then the tour will continue around this beautiful montain, reaching a totally different environment – the wild and beautiful coast line of Guincho, with its superb beach areas, cliffs and where, close by, is located Cape Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe.

The tour will return to Lisbon, via Cascais, a cosmopolitan former fishing village, and the Estoril coast line.
