We started the tour with the visit of the Quinta da Regaleira, built between 1904 and 1910, based on the imagination of its owner, António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro, and the architect responsible for the project, Luigi Maninicom. Location in the historic center of the village. It has an architecture that refers to the environments of the monarchy, with a romantic structure, surrounded by gardens, caves, lakes, and enigmatic buildings that bring out the Gothic and Renaissance.
We follow the tour visiting the Park and Palace of Monserrate, located near the historical center of Sintra, one of the most beautiful architectural and landscape creations of Romanticism in Portugal, unique witnesses of the eclectismos of the XIX century. The Palace combines Gothic, Indian and Moorish suggestions, as well as exotic and vegetable motifs that extend harmoniously abroad. The gardens received species from around the world and were organized by geographical areas. The turf facing the Palace allows for a well-deserved rest, during the discovery of one of the richest botanical gardens in Portugal
Lunch at one of our partner restaurants (Menu of the Day) will be served traditional Portuguese food. (included in the value of the Tour)
After lunch, visit the National Palace of Sintra, which was built in the 15th century, with medieval, Gothic, Renaissance and romantic architecture. The Sintra National Palace was a stronghold of the Portuguese Royal Family until the year 1910.
Then you can enjoy the Trolley Tours. These Sintra tours are one of the ex-libris of the romantic village. Recalling the times when kings, nobles and wealthy bourgeois who strolled through those stops. In a scenario with so many manorial references, riding a carriage in Sintra, as an aristocrat of modern times, becomes tempting. With departure from the center, you can choose from several circuits.

At the end of the Tour, a small snack will be served at “A Piriquita” Pastry, where you will taste the famous Pasteis de Sintra. The house was founded in 1862, about 160 years ago. In the 1940s, while much of the World was shattered, a new treasure was born in Sintra. Constância Luísa Cunha, the founder’s daughter, developed the Pillow, a cake filled with egg candy and an almond-shaped touch, but with the secret so well kept that only the direct family has access to the recipe of the filling.
