What you'll do

Let's start with the majestic Pena Palace. Surrounded by 85 hectares of gardens is one of the few elements of the romantic period in Europe and the World. I know some tricks that will help you to visit some of the main points like the Condensa Chalet or the Valley of the Lakes saving you time and effort. On the way we pass the Moorish Castle, a fortress built between the years 700 and 900, one of the symbols represented on the Portuguese flag. We also visit "Quinta da Regaleira", a mythical estate created by a multimillionaire in the late 19th century that contains Catholic, Masonic, Templar Knights, Kabala, Numerology and other philosophical elements. It's a unique place in the whole world. We take a break for lunch and sample typical Portuguese cuisine at a local restaurant. After lunch we will still pass in the mythical palace of Francis Cook, The Monserrate Palace. There you'll find a Mexican garden, a rose collection and breathtaking architecture with Indian motifs. This is a magical place where for example the poet Lord Byron vacationed many summers. Having seen the palaces we will go into wine country. It's in the region of Colares that are located the oldest Vinyards in Portugal. We head to the coast and the beautiful beaches of Sintra with high cliffs and a blue ocean that has zero pollution. We will also visit the Azenhas do Mar and the Roca Cape. In the end of our journey we'll say goodbye to the day at Cascais Bay Area.

Bernardo

I was a journalist 23 years. I worked in newspapers, radiostations and televisions channels. I have the gift and a special taste in communicating with people. I'm in love with Portugal, which I know like nobody else and especially Sintra, where I moved over 5 years ago. I like monuments and historical points but I also like the other places and stories that remain untold in the mass tour circuits. Do you want to embark on an unforgettable trip in palaces and historical monuments but also in alternative places where almost no guide will take you to? Come and live an unforgettable day!
