Sintra, Pena Palace and Cascais Half-Day Trip from Lisbon

Sintra, Pena Palace and Cascais Half-Day Trip from Lisbon

Meet your guide in central Lisbon at Comercio Square (Praça do Comércio) for your Sintra, Pena Palace (Palácio da Pena), and Cascais half-day tour. Journey west to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Sintra, a storybook town situated in the foothills of the Sintra Mountains. Arrive and head to the opulent Pena Palace for a 1.5-hour walking tour.

See the eclectic architectural styles of this 19th century Romanticist palace and learn how it served as a monastery and summer residence to Portuguese royalty. Absorb the ambiance of the ballroom where nobles courted one another and explore luxurious rooms filled with fine Edwardian and Victorian furniture. Then, grab a glimpse of beautiful artwork in the Arab Room before you walk the stately grounds of Pena Park to see an assortment of exotic plants and trees.

Leave the palace and enjoy a half hour on you own to spend strolling the fairytale town of Sintra. Perhaps relax at a cafe for a tasty coffee and local treats like “queijadas de Sintra” or “travesseiros.” Or visit Sintra National Palace (Palácio da Vila), presently a historic house museum (own expense).

Next, head to the westernmost point in Europe, Cabo da Roca (March to October only). Treasure views of waves crashing into the majestic cliffside and granite boulders. Relax for a 20-minute break snapping perfect panoramic photos and stellar selfies!

Your final stop is the coastal town of Cascais, a former getaway of Portugal’s royal family in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Spend 10 minutes combing the pretty quaint beaches before pocketing your camera and heading back to Lisbon where your tour ends.

Great tour, guide gave us sufficient time to walk around the palace. Stops at Cabo do Roca and Cascais were short, but I didn't feel that more time was needed to take some pictures.
