In the morning

Sintra Mountain Range and its monuments

Town of Sintra - National Palace - Moorish Castle - Pena Palace - Quinta da Regaleira - Seteais Palace - Monserrate Palace

We begin our exciting tour in the charming historic center of Sintra, where the majesty of the National Palace of Sintra stands as a witness to bygone eras. We will stroll through the medieval village, exploring its picturesque cobbled streets filled with unique shops offering a variety of artisanal souvenirs. Our first stop will be at the famous Piriquita pastry shop, with over 400 years of tradition, where you can taste the delicious travesseiros and queijadas, the typical sweets that capture the authentic flavor of Sintra.

We continue our tour ascending towards the highest part of Sintra, to the impressive viewpoint of Santa Eufémia. From here, the hermitage becomes the starting point for a unique visual experience. You will enjoy a panoramic view that encompasses the entire municipality of Sintra, with the majestic Pena Palace and the imposing Moorish Castle on the horizon. This will also be our first contact with the natural reserve, surrounded by the serenity of its lush trees and the exuberant vegetation that characterizes this region.

We descend towards the charming Kissing Park, also known as Parque de la Look out point, where a spectacular panoramic view of the Sintra natural reserve awaits us. From this point, we enjoy a unique perspective of the majestic Pena Palace and the imposing Moorish Castle, surrounded by the lushness of the mountain range. After appreciating these views, we head towards the Pena Palace via the picturesque Carretera da Pena. Along the way, we'll make a stop at the historic Sabuga Fountain, known for its medicinal water beneficial for the stomach and skin. We'll pass by the impressive National Palace of Sintra, houses with over 300 years of history, and several viewpoints offering incredible views of the Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle.

Next, we head to the other side of the mountain to explore three of Sintra's most fascinating treasures: the enigmatic Quinta da Regaleira, the elegant Seteais Palace, and the charming Monserrate Palace. We'll make stops at each of these places, where stunning views and corners of incomparable beauty within the natural reserve await us. At Quinta da Regaleira, you'll discover mystical gardens and the famous Initiation Well. Seteais Palace will surprise you with its neoclassical architecture and panoramic views of the mountain range. Finally, at Monserrate Palace, you'll be captivated by its exotic gardens and the harmony between art and nature.
