From Lisbon, in the village of Sintra, the sidewalks are always full with tour groups, day trippers and people walking the wrong way. When you decide to take a Sintra tour, there you will find one of the largest relics that the wonderful village of Sintra offers: the Quinta da Regaleira ! It is known for its unique cultural and natural beauty.
Along with the Historic Centre of Sintra, the Palace and Quinta da Regaleira were classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage.
Nevertheless, the Quinta da Regaleira, that consists of a Palace, a chapel, a Forest and a number of luxurious gardens, with exotic trees and abundant vegetation, and even a tunnel network connecting all the buildings, is one of the most beautiful examples of the revival art of the 20th century. In the Palace you can see the beautiful architecture, large rooms, and fine details, but when you make the visit with a local guide you get to know the story behind the walls…
At this point, the Tribos Tours team can tell you this story and show you everything related to it. We do have an all included Sintra tour with visit to the Quinta da Regaleira. In this Sintra tour, you will be able to discover the secrets that the Quinta da Regaleira has kept over these years: every corner of this place hides mysterious meanings of Freemasonry and the Knights Templar, including tunnels, Gothic towers, and fortified stone walls.
After this visit, we shall head to Colares where we will enjoy a delicious typical Portuguese meal with starters, main course, dessert and coffee. Our Sintra tour offers you an incredible wine tasting in Sintra village. You shall learn the history of regional wines, visit the wineries and find out the story of the German Baron from the Winery Adega do Casal de Sta. Maria.
From the Winery we will drive you to the lovely Praia das Maçãs beach, where you may enjoy the fresh sea breeze while waiting for the charming tram that will take you back to Sintra village, across breath taking places such as Pinhal, Banzão, Colares, Galamares, Ribeira de Sintra and Monte Santos.
We couldn’t leave Sintra village without tasting its irresistible regional pastry, namely queijadas and travesseiros. Last but not least we will take you back to your hotel, following the road to Cascais, so you may take in your heart and mind the incredible views from the mountain meeting the sea.
