Hailed by poets for the great beauty of its surrounding mountain range, Sintra Village is renowned for the view of the old Royal Palace, perched on the highest peak. One of Portugal’s oldest settlements, occupied by both Moors and the Portuguese monarchs, whose castles and palaces add charm to the village. Enjoy free time to explore at your own pace. Enjoy a photo opportunity at the Praia do Guincho and capture the magnificent views. Cascais, originally an old Portuguese fishing village, has now become a popular holiday resort. Set alongside the picturesque Bay of Cascais, lovely early 20th century homes mingle with modern buildings, creating a delightful atmosphere. You’ll have some free time to wander along the streets, enjoy the views or browse in the local shops. The return drive will be along the Corniche bordering the River Tagus, passing by the well-known village of Estoril.
