The tour begins in the Historic Center of Sintra where you meet your expert guide for the day, a local historian. Listen to an insightful introduction about the region and a selection of romantic stories set here.

With your guide, go off-the-beaten-track into a quieter part of the area. Climb the hills and wander through the woodlands as you discover romantic meeting-spots from the 18th and 19th centuries, documented through historic literature and personal memoirs.
