elcome to a breathtaking journey with jaw-dropping views and mystical locations. We start this unforgettable voyage with a drive along the Marginal Avenue, a winding waterfront road with sweeping views of the Tagus river and the Atlantic Ocean.
As we reach Cascais, we take our time to walk around and bask in the narrow alleys and relax at the beachfront. Learn why today it’s an elite and chic hotspot, after being a refuge during World War II for numerous royal families in Europe. Then we continue to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe. Have your camera ready because the views are real postcards!
From there we will go to Sintra, whose cultural landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Before exploring its historic center, we will go to the Quinta da Regaleira, one of the most romantic places you’ll ever see. The property has 4 hectares, a palace, lush gardens, lakes, grottoes and enigmatic constructions, places that hide mysterious meanings evoked by orders such as the Freemasonry and the Knights Templar.
After lunch, enjoy some free time to explore the village center before heading to Pena Palace. It will be easy to fall in love at first sight! Pena is much more than a castle: it’s a unique expression of Architectural Romanticism, something out of a fairy tale, situated approximately 500 meters above sea level. It is also a World Heritage Site, blended from many styles: gothic, neo-Manuelin, neo-Islamic and neo-Renaissance. A perfect way to end this great day before returning to Lisbon.
