Sintra - A Journey Through Wonderland with Swingo, an Avenidas Tour Brand

Discover what makes Sintra the most romantic corner of Portugal on a private day trip to this forested enclave of palaces and estates that seem plucked straight from a fairy tale. With a personal guide arranging all the details, visit the former royal retreats of Pena Palace and Quinta da Regaleira, stroll through UNESCO-listed Sintra, and enjoy the ocean air in seaside Cascais.

The UNESCO-listed Pena Palace, a 19th-century Romantic palace is a wonder to discover and one you will not soon forget. It is one of the best places to take pictures. It’s placed high on top of the mountain with a splendid view that stretches for miles, all the way to the Ocean.

As you stroll through the beautiful and exotic landscape, your guide will give you historical and architectural details on the region but letting you explore the monuments on your own.

The stunning Quinta da Regaleira, another UNESCO-listed site, has anciently carved buildings, incredible gardens and a gothic breeze that will enchant anyone who dares to enter. Full of history behind it, you will learn all about the caves, secret wells and art that originated from the Masonry, the Templars and the Rose Cross.

We'll take a stroll through the historical center of Sintra. This is a good time to rest, lunch and try out some traditional regional pastries.

Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Continental Europe, is yet another great spot to take some pictures and feel the sea breeze.

We'll also show you the place where many Portuguese Royal Families used to spend their vacation. We would not consider this trip a success if you didn’t experience the coastal splendor of Cascais.
