Sintra at your pace

Venture out to discover Sintra and its surrounding area. Go on foot, by bike, by car or even by horse and cart. The important thing is that you go to discover the perfect combination of monuments, history, the sea and mountains.

Take a trip to Sintra, a UNESCO world heritage site, and visit its Royal Palace, the National Pena Palace, the Moorish Castle and the Palace of Monserrate with its fantastic gardens.

The Sintra mountain range rises up from the heart of the town and drops down to the ocean at the westernmost point of continental Europe near the Convento at Cabo da Roca. Fantastic!

Golden sand, the crystal-clear water of the Atlantic and the sheer cliffs give the beaches around Sintra their unique character.

As with everywhere in Portugal, don’t leave without trying the local gastronomy and specialties.

Trekking

For those who enjoy walking, we suggest exploring the beautiful mountain trails and visiting the most extraordinary places in the Sintra region on foot, with the help of experienced guides who are well-versed in the history of the region and its legends, traditions and sacred places.

Themed tours

With help from our partners, we organise themed tours through the region and photographic excursions, led by professionals who provide guidance and instruction on these carefully designed expeditions through the most emblematic places in the Sintra area.
