Discover Sintra, a charming village, declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, the capital of the Romanticism in Portugal and known for its striking monuments. Its microclimate of humidity helped to develop exuberant vegetation praised by the romantic writers of the 19th century. You will have the opportunity to visit the National Palace, a true tile museum with examples from the 15th and 16th centuries. To get to know a town we must experiment its flavors, so we’ll taste a “travesseiro”, a yummy regional sweet.

After a stroll in the typical streets of the village of Sintra we will proceed, crossing the Mountain and the nature park of Sintra-Cascais, to reach the coast where we will find the Guincho beach. We will arrive in Cascais, the favorite place for the summer holidays of the royal family and the aristocracy in the 19th century, known for its bay where we can still now see the fishermen boats. After a stroll in the streets of Cascais we will pass by Estoril, where the gardens of 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.
