Sintra > Cabo da Roca > Cascais > Estoril
Owing to its 19th-century Romantic architecture and landscapes, Sintra has become a major tourist centre, visited by many day-trippers who travel from the urban and suburbs of the Capital, Lisbon.
In addition to the Sintra Mountains and Sintra-Cascais Nature Park, the parishes of the town of Sintra are dotted by royal retreats, estates, castles and buildings from the 8th-9th century.
There are also many buildings completed between the 15th and 19th century, including the Castelo dos Mouros, the Pena National Palace and the Sintra National Palace, resulting in its classification by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1995.
After visiting the town of Sintra also we head to Cabo da Roca, “where the land meets the sea”, the Westernmost point of Europe. One of the most magical places in Portugal, it personifies the spirit that led the Portuguese to throw themselves out to discover new worlds.
We will then move onto the magnificent beach of Guincho, famous for its waves and loved by windsurfers and kitesurfers.
The attractions of this region are not limited to the sea and the extraordinary coastline. The historical heritage, particularly the delicious and picturesque town of Cascais, is one of the great interests of the area, with important architectural and artistic works. There is a wide variety of cultural activities to ensure that you are never bored. The Casino de Estoril, the largest in Europe, is the best example of this: One of the most important entertainment venues in Portugal, it offers visitors an extraordinary selection – from the many different forms of gaming to great moments of entertainment, with daily shows.
