Sintra Free Tour
The Portuguese Fairytale
Meeting Point: Jardim Correnteza
Every day at 11:00
With its exotic landscape and climate, Sintra became the place where the nobles and aristocrats from the XIX century started to build their summer palaces and since then, it's attracted visitors from all over the world, such as the British poet Lord Byron and the German composer Richard Strauss.
Classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995, Sintra is considered by many the most beautiful city in Portugal and a place that shouldn't be missed.
From Jardim Correnteza, we'll make our way through the narrow streets of Sintra Village, to discover its history, traditions, culture and have the chance to try the famous local pastries, Queijada and Travesseiro.
We'll have the chance to see the Sintra National Palace, one of the oldest palaces in Portugal and learn a bit more about the Portuguese Royal family, the Moorish Castle built to protect the city from invaders, discover the secrets of the majestic Quinta da Regaleira, to wonder at the incredible Palácio da Pena, built on the top of the hill, next to a former monastery by King D. Fernando II in the XIX century and much more.
We are sure after this tour, you'll fall in love with this magical place and feel that one day is actually not enough.
