Be fascinated by the scenery and allured with the location.  Afterwards, discover Cascais, a tourist center of great tradition. Visit the impressive Boca do Inferno, a coast recess surrounded by cliffs and rocky caves.

Sintra, Portuguese village that charms everyone with its hills full of palaces, a Castle and lush Nature. Discover why Sintra has seduced and inspired many novelists and poets such as Eca de Queiroz, Luis de Camoes, Lord Byron and Hans Christian Andersen.Located on top of the Sintra hills it is the Pena National Palace that was result of a dream from an artist king, Ferdinand II. The Park and the Pena National Palace are the pinnacle of XIX century Romanticism in Portugal. Obligatory stop for those who visit the romantic and mysterious town of Sintra. After a visit to the Park and the Pena National Palace, the composer Richard Strauss wrote: "Today is the happiest day of my life. It's the most beautiful thing I've seen. This is the true Klingsor Garden - and there, up on high, is the Holy Grail Castle." During the time between visits to monuments, you can stroll through the narrow winding streets in the historic part of the village where a variety of restaurants, shops with typical products of the region and the famous Tea House "Piriquita", known for its famous regional pastry "Travesseiros de Sintra", expect you.Next stop is Cape Roca. This cape forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal and continental Europe. The famous Portuguese poet Luis de Camões wrote in the XVI century that this cape is: “Where land ends and sea begins." The windswept cliffs of the Cape Roca were believed to be the edge of the world.Before reaching the center of Cascais go to Hellsmouth (Boca do Inferno). A coastal recess surrounded by steep cliffs and caves, this remains a natural curiosity that attracts many visitors to see the force of the sea.The town of Cascais is a lively and cosmopolitan town, which still retains its aristocratic trace. Beaches are one of the biggest attractions, and you can choose from those located in its sheltered bay, or those a little further away in the Guincho area (already integrated in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park) that offer excellent conditions for surfing and windsurfing.
