Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Cascais and Estoril

Culture and History tour in Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais, Estoril

Tour Price : From 36 Euros per per Duration : 8/9 hours Languages: Portuguese, English, German, Spanish

First of all we will pick you from the hotel you’re staying and proceed to the town of Sintra, which is added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. We will stroll through the ancient streets of Sintra and visit its most interesting tourist destinations. It is worth noting that Sintra is a popular tourist attraction in Portugal due to its remarkable 19th century Romantic architecture and breath-taking landscapes. Pena National Palace will be our first destination in Sintra. It is an outstanding Romanticist palace situated in one of the municipalities of Sintra.

The palace was built on top of a hill, and as a result it can be easily seen from any point in Lisbon. The Pena National Palace is considered to be a national monument and one of the most important expressions of the Romanticist epoch. Besides being included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites it is also considered to be one of the Seven wonders of Portugal. There is one more remarkable palace to see near Lisbon – the Sintra National Palace. Some people also call it Town Palace. It is situated not far from Lisbon so it is possible to combine a private tour in Lisbon and then proceed to the Sintra National Palace. It is considered to be the best preserved medieval Royal Palace in the whole Portugal, which has been inhabited for at least several centuries since the 15th century and up till the end of the 19th century.

According to the statistics this palace attracts more tourists then any other historical place in Portugal. The history of the castle began at the times of Islamic Domination, when it was built to serve as a residence for Moorish rulers. Nowadays the castle represents the mixture of Gothic, Moorish and Manueline styles. Our next destination will be Cabo da Roca, from where will will move to the wonderful town of Cascais. As your professional private guide in Lisbon I would strongly advice you to visit this coastal town, which is considered to be one of the richest municipalities in Portugal.
