What you'll do

Prepare your intellectual spirit and adventurous soul. On this day trip from Lisbon, you will discover the magical and the mystical Sintra. I will guide you through a carefully chosen selection of monuments and sites. The goal is to experience why Sintra has proved to be so captivating for lovers, royals and storytellers on the past centuries. Upon arrival, we’ll marvel with the mix of architectural styles (Moorish, Manueline and Gothic) of Pena Palace exterior and talk about its references to the most important periods of Portuguese History. We'll also explore the Romantic Park that surrounds the Palace. It offers exotic plant species, and also the best views of Lisbon region. After lunch, I'll invite you to taste the famous local pastry (Travesseiro). You can't skip it! We'll then head into Quinta da Regaleira, a place full of symbols which refers to Hermeticism, Alchemy, Greek Mythology and more. We'll explore fountains, grottos, an initiation well, the palace and a network of secret tunnels. The "cherry on top" of this day trip, is the visit to Cabo da Roca, the western most point of continental Europe.

OIá from Rui and Rute! My name is Rui and I am a tour guide, surfer and musician. I felt in love with Sintra when I was studying professional tour guiding in the 90’s. I was enchanted by its history, legends and myths, spending there many years of my life. The idea of this experience came up when I decided to show Sintra to my best friend. So I’ve created this route in 2017, together with a very small tour company (West Vagabond). Recently I invited the energetic and vibrant Rute to be my co-host. We share the same passion and want you to experience Sintra, on a relaxed and funny way.
