Sintra is one of Europe’s most picturesque and romantic jewels. Situated in a mountainous Natural Park, this UNESCO world heritage region is home to some of the most amazing monuments in Portugal, including what was considered the most beautiful Castle in Europe (2014) and Garden (2013) by the European Best Destinations Organization. Sintra is also home to amazing natural features and a dramatic and very picturesque coastline that you will not want to miss, including the westernmost point of continental Europe.
Cascais, on the other hand, is all about quality of life: Amazing waterfront restaurants, picturesque villas and a very scenic shoreline which is part of a Natural Park. It’s where going to the beach first became popular in Portugal and many European Royal families gathered to enjoy its luxurious and happy vibe. It’s a high-class vibe that started almost a century ago and is very much alive today.
The Alentejo is where the Portuguese culture is most alive and untouched. On this tour we’ll visit the heart of this rural Portuguese region. Here lies the museum like city of Évora and the medieval village of Monsaraz.
Jump into the heart of Portuguese rural identity and let yourself be dazzled by this ancient UNESCO world heritage city. From the Neolithic (6000 BC) to the Roman empire, passing through to the Arabic domination and to the final settling of the Christians, Monsaraz is a national history museum and home to some of Portugal’s greatest monuments.
Surrounded by the vast rural plains of the Alentejo, there isn’t a better place to discover the Portuguese countryside and gastronomy: olive oil, wine and cork tree forests.
On our final day we’ll drive north of Lisbon to discover the old trading routes and origins of Portugal. It will pleasantly combine history, culture and beautiful scenery. You’ll discover majestic monuments like the Convent of Christ (the Templar’s headquarters) and the Monastery of Batalha. The Portuguese deep ocean culture is perfectly represented by the town of Nazaré – home to the biggest waves in the world (it holds the Guinness world record for the biggest wave ever surfed) and a strong fishing culture. We’ll also discover the unique medieval walled town of Óbidos, its historic streets and traditional architecture.
