Beautiful villages of unique charms, in communion with the mountains and the ocean, between glamor and glorious Eden, rich in history, heritage and natural beauty.
The unique features of Sintra have made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site, both for its natural richness – with its luxurious landscape – and the village’s patrimony.
Special regard to the Vila Palace, where we can still find signs of the Arabian people, as the tiles portraying two huge conical chimneys, an iconic symbol of the site.
Also the sumptuous Palácio da Pena (Pena Palace) on one of the mountains top, which symbolizes the romantic period.
Sintra’s conventual sweets deserve a special reference, namely the ''travesseiros'' and ''queijadas'' that date back to the 12th century.
Towards the Atlantic coast, we find Cabo da Roca, the most western point of the European continent and the village of Cascais which in the 19th century, used to be an elegant summer retreat of the Portuguese monarchy.
Thanks to the neutral position of the country, during World War II, Cascais was actually a shelter for the European royalty.
It is a fishing village that reinvented itself, thus becoming a refined seaside resort and one of the most sought-after destinations in the country.
In the direction of Lisbon, by the Marginal we arrive at Estoril, known for its Casino, one of the largest and oldest in Europe, for its historic hotels and for the glamor of the most varied events in the world that has been the scene since the 1950s XX.
