About Colares

At the foot of the Sintra mountains and very close to the sea, the town of Colares is absolutely delightful and has long been a very popular summer resort. Colares is also a demarcated wine-growing region, producing the very popular and increasingly rare Colares wine, which can be tasted at the Adega Regional, in a very beautiful building in the town centre. Right next to it is the tram station which links Sintra with Praia das Maçãs in the summer months. In the environs of Colares are the beaches of Praia das Maças, Praia Grande and Adraga, and the typical village of Azenhas do Mar, with its whitewashed houses inset in the side of a cliff.

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"I HIGHLY recommend this tour. Our guide, Joao (aka John), was amazing. He was so funny, knowledgeable, and personable, we had a really great time with him. All the stops we made during the tour and sites we saw were fantastic, and John gave us ample time to explore individually as well. My husband normally dislikes guided tours but he was blown away by how well planned and enjoyable this tour was. Thank you, Joao, for a wonderful day!!!"
