Full description
Start with a pick-up from your hotel at around 09:00 and take the route to Queluz Palace. As a palace of the 18th-century, it was built as a summer retreat for Dom Pedro of Braganza, who would later be her husband and King Consort of his niece, Queen Maria I Portugal. Stop to take pictures. Continue with the tour through the historic center of Sintra, where you can see the wonderful old streets and take pictures at the National Palace of Sintra and make a short walking tour. Continue with your tour to Regaleira, a romantic place for excellence. It is the result of the achievement of the myth magical dreams of its owner, António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro (1848-1920). Stop for photos and visit to its interior if it is your desire.

Then, explore Pena Palace, the most extravagant Portuguese palace built on a rock with an altitude of 500 meters dominating the entire coast of Lisbon. The Arabic architecture and Manueline style present in this palace, give life to the pure Portuguese romanticism. Mandatory visit to Chalet of Edla Condess, and pass through Moors Castle, Seteais Palace and Mosserrate Palace. Next, go to Roca Cape, “where the land ends and the sea begins.” Dominating the tumultuous waters 140 meters high which beat noisily against the rocks. It offers superb views of the Atlantic Ocean at its most wild but before, you will make a stop at Adraga Beach for lunch.

Nearby Cascais, you will find Hell’s Mouth. This gap in the rock is a giant canyon carved by the sea with the beating of the waves. A worthy spectacle to enjoy the sound of the waves reminding the devil’s voice growling and spitting squirts of water. Finally, the tour goes through Cascais fishing village since the 12th-century and so remained until today, a privileged place for the exiled European nobility during the two world wars, still keeping its glamour and architectural richness of other times. Return to Lisbon by following all along the coast through Estoril and Carcavelos admiring the immense beaches the coast offers. Expect to return back to Lisbon at 17:00.
