Sintra is a true glorious Garden of Eden, as the famous British poet Lord Byron once called it. Discover this paradise just outside Lisbon and why people like Hans Christian Andersen and Gloria Swanson were delighted with the magic and mystique that emanate from the palaces, villas and estates of this charming village. Visit the Sintra National Palace, the best preserved medieval palace in the country, the Pena National Palace and its profusion of exotic and eclectic styles, united in a perfect masterpiece of architectural Romanticism.
We started with the tour through the historical center of SINTRA where you can see the wonderful old streets and take photos to the NATIONAL PALACE of Sintra. Then we will discover PALÁCIO DA PENA, the most extravagant Portuguese Palace built on a rock with 500 meters of Altitude dominating the entire coast to Lisbon. The Arab architecture, and Manueline well present in this palace, give life to the purest Portuguese romantic style. We continue the tour until CABO DA ROCA, "where the land ends and the sea begins." Dominating the tumultuous waters at 140m high where they hit with a lot of noise against the rocks. It offers superb views of the Atlantic Ocean in its wildest state. we followed our route to the village of cascais, but before passing by the wonderful beach of the Guincho where the force of the wind prevails on the agitated waters of the Atlantic ocean, Passage by the MOUTH OF HELL, This opening in the rock is a giant canyon dug by the sea with the crashing of its waves. A spectacle worthy of appreciation at the sound of the waves remembering the voice of the devil snarling and spitting splashes of water. Finally the excursion passes through CASCAIS, (Monte de Conchas) fishing village since the 12th century and it was preserved until the days of Today. A privileged place for the exile of the European Nobility during the two World Wars, still retaining its glamor and architectural wealth of other times. Return to Lisbon by following the whole coast, passing through Estoril, Carcavelos admiring the immense beaches that the coast offers us and welcoming us to Lisbon but which announces the end of a unique day spent in our company. so we finished the Sintra Cascais Tour.
