Declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, Sintra is nature, romanticism and heritage. Here we’ll be able to choose which palace to visit: Vila Palace (14th century Royal Residence), Pena Palace (an early 20th century royal residence) or Regaleira Palace and Estate House (a 19th century esoteric delirium), all of them perfectly integrated in nature. To get to know a town we must experiment its flavours, so we’ll taste a “travesseiro”, a yummy regional sweet.

Afterwards, we’ll go through Sintra Mountain and Sintra Cascais Nature Park, on our way to the most western point of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca (Cape of Rock), standing at 420 feet of altitude. Continuing along the oceanic coast, we’ll reach Cascais, a royal family and aristocracy summer town since the 19th century. We’ll take a walk along its little streets by the beach where you can still see fishing boats. It’s time to go back to Lisbon, passing by Estoril, where the biggest casino in Europe can be seen, and we’ll continue our trip along the coast until we discover together the place where the Tagus River meets the Atlantic Ocean.
