There is more to Lisbon than a quaint old town with lovely people and good food.

Come with us explore Sintra, the Garden Town of Lisbon, with your days ending in a spa hotel!

This is our PARTNER EVENT.

We will be spending the first two nights and days in this lushly green and colourful town, going on hikes, passing by local monuments and eating good food.

DAY 1 – FRIDAYROUTE OF ROMANTICISM 

Duration: About 6 hours | Difficulty: Moderate

Our route of Romanticism will take you into the heart of the Cultural Landscape of Sintra, UNESCO World Heritage and its fabulous architectural monuments.

Our walk starts in a beautiful wood from where we will reach the Moorish castle walls. Relive a thousand years of history in the visit to the renovated Moorish Castle. Step back further in time, and see the remains of villages from the Neolithic period with about five thousand years old.

Our journey into the amazing 19th Century begins at the Pena Park. Indulge in the intimacy of it’s gardens and large Victorian lakes. From here we will go to the “Pena” palace and it’s gorgeous architecture, the most important center of the Sintra Cultural Landscape, as well as its romantic botanical gardens. Before the guided visit to the Pena Palace, you can lunch inside the palace, or bring your own picnic and have a pleasant lunch inside the lovely gardens.

Enjoy the originality of the Chalet of Countess “D’Edla” and discover the woods which are a tribute to the “Romanticism” movement.

DAY 2 – SATURDAY – SINTRA, SIERRA OF SECULAR MYSTERIES

Duration: About 6 hours | Difficulty: Moderate

Come with us to meet a more mystical and occult Sierra de Sintra side, World Heritage by UNESCO, and feel what is considered the most beautiful and mystical Portuguese sierra. On this tour we will meet its people and their customs.

We take you to some of the sierra highest points, like the “Peninha” shrine and marvel with the infinite views. Discover its secrets and mysteries.

We will meet the most typical village of Sintra, whose beginnings date back to the sixteenth century, the “Holy Spirit” village. Known for its countless fountains and streams, is here that we will do our lunch in a rural tavern where we can taste the local food.

After the meal, and along some horse breeders farms, we will enter again in a forest corridor toward to the “Capuchos” convent, where we will finish our hike.

The last 2 days is yours to visit the old city of Lisbon without a guide, after receiving local advice. By now you have made some new friends and you can set your own pace.
