We'll start the day away from the crowds in Queluz Palace, a sumptuous 18th century royal palace: the perfect place to learn the curiosities about the period pre-earthquake, the French invasions, the life in Brazil, our royal family peculiar marriages. Enjoy its amazing gardens: an incredible tasty blend of Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassicism. (If you prefer we can visit Pena Palace instead - please read the note below in the itinerary section)

Then, we'll visit to the historic centre of Sintra, a fascinating small town at the bottom of the mountain range. Endowed with luxuriant vegetation, it is part of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Fairytale castles and palaces will take you back in time; undoubtedly a special nook with unique characteristics that led UNESCO to classify it as a World heritage site.

Drive towards the Atlantic blue waters of Cascais, a 19th century fishermen's village, today a summer retreat with a very noble atmosphere. Photo stop and return to Lisbon along the scenic coastal road.
