Private tour in Lisbon, Sintra
Tour Price : $250-400 Duration : 8 hours Languages: Portuguese, English, German, Spanish
Sintra Mountains are located not far from the city so we can combine a private tour in Lisbon and explore its main sites and places of interest and then move to Mountains. This mountain range lies only 25 kilometers to the west from Lisbon so it will take us no more than 30 minutes of driving in a comfortable air-conditioned van. The highest point of the mountain range could be found in Sintra. The range is situated between the Sintra town and Cabo de Roca. In the ancient world it was known as the Lunae Mons, which means “mountains of the Moon”. According to the Greek legends it was the legendary retreat of the Goddess of Hunting – Diana.
Any private guide in Lisbon would definitely advice you to visit this place due to the fact that a lot of legends and myths are associated with it. There were reports even of some kind of supernatural activity in the Sintra Mountains. We will continue our tour and proceed to the main sites of Sitra. We will definitely explore the Pena National Palace. It is situated right on the top of the hill, so it is seen almost from any point in Lisbon. The Pena Palace is a very important national monument of the Romanticist epoch. The palace was added to the UNESCO list of the World Heritage Sites. Moreover it is considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.
During our private tour in Lisbon we will also take a look at the Sintra Royal Palace (Sintra National Palace), which is considered to be the best preserved medieval palace. It was built many centuries ago to serve as a residence for the Moorish rulers. Our next destination will be the Regaleira palace (Quinta da Regaleira), which is also considered to be the World Heritage Site. It is truly a remarkable place which attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. The palace is surrounded with a luxurious park with numerous wells, grottoes, benches, lakes, fountains and lots of other exquisite constructions.
