Discover Sintra and Cascais
Sintra & Cascais, Portugal
Discover the charming Estoril Coast and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Sintra with your private guide, strolling the historic streets and soaking in the delightful character of the old city.
Sintra is awash with captivating old houses, many of which now host handicraft shops and bakeries where you can sample the famed pastries. A particular highlight is the Pena Palace, a 19th-century marvel whose eclectic architecture epitomizes Portugal’s diverse history.
The coastal town of Cascais, once a small fishing village, retains the charm of the old seafaring tradition while the royal influences of the 19th and 20th century inhabitants are evident in the aristocratic houses. This confluence of cultures remains to this day, with the fishing harbor sitting comfortably alongside the marina.
Returning to Lisbon brings you along the 'Marginal' road which runs parallel to the white sandy beaches of the coastline and the 17th-century fortresses of Estoril.
