Breathtaking Pena Palace & enchanting beautiful town of Sintra


We'll start the day with an early drive up the hill to the extravagant 19th Romantic Pena Palace to arrive there before all crowds and have this breathtaking gem just for ourselves. Unmissable landmark and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal, you have to go there at least once your lifetime!
After this unforgettable start, we'll proceed to the historic centre of Sintra, a fascinating small town at the foot of the 528m/1732ft mountain. Endowed with luxuriant vegetation, it is part of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.

Surrounded by fairytale castles and palaces, it's undoubtedly a special nook with unique characteristics that led UNESCO to classify it as a World heritage site.

Time for a local pastry and a drink at Sintra historic centre and let's go back to the beautiful bustling Lisbon :)

A perfect half day of beautiful landscapes and history awaits!
