Walk through the Sintra Cascais Natural Park, following beautiful coastal and inland trails and exploring the exquisite palaces, castles and monasteries of this stunning part of Portugal.
Easily accessible from nearby Lisbon, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sintra is a sight to behold. With its lush tropical gardens and colourful monuments it is clear to see why it was a popular summer residence for Portuguese nobility between the 15th and 19th centuries.
Contrasting trails take you from tranquil wooded hills to the rugged Atlantic coast, with views over golden sandy beaches. Discover the impressive “cork convent” of Capuchos, and the remote Peninha Chapel. Feast on delicious fresh seafood and Colares wine, whilst sipping local Colares wine, and stay overnight in boutique hotels, including the wonderful Convent of Sâo Saturnino.
