Sintra Half-Day Trip - A Journey through Wonderland

    What to Expect
    We take-off from Lisbon in the morning heading directly to the UNESCO-listed Pena Palace. The 19th-century Romantic palace is a wonder to discover and one you will not soon forget. It is one of the best places to take pictures. It’s placed high on top of the mountain with a splendid view that stretches for miles, all the way to the Ocean.
    As you stroll through the beautiful and exotic landscape, your guide will give you historical and architectural details on the region.  Later we continue through the National Park onwards to see the Chalets, Moorish Castle and Montserrate Palace.
    Moving forward we have the stunning Quinta da Regaleira. This yet another UNESCO-listed site has anciently carved buildings, incredible gardens and a gothic breeze that will enchant anyone who dares to enter. Full of history behind it, you will learn all about the caves, secret wells and art that originated from the Masonry, the Templars and the Rose Cross.
    Reaching the end of our trip we'll take a stroll through the historical center of Sintra. This is a good time to rest, lunch and try out some traditional regional pastries.
