The Lisbon and Sintra Region

HISTORY, BEAUTY AND ENCHANTMENT

Lisbon & Sintra Tours and Trips

Conquered by the Moors in 1147, Lisboa is a legendary city with more than 20 centuries of history. The Tagus River provides a unique light to the city.

In a city that over time has been influenced by many different cultures, there is still a village feel in the historic neighbourhoods. Prepare yourself to get lost while exploring the old parts of Lisbon like Alfama, Graça, and Chiado, discovering the many miradouros (viewpoints) that offer a magnificent view of Lisboa. Stroll around the Pombaline streets in the Baixa district that lead to the Tagus River in Praça do Comércio, then follow the river to discover some of the city’s most beautiful parts, including the historic area of Belém with its World Heritage monuments, such as Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Discoveries Monument) and Mosteiro dos Jerónimos.

Sintra is all about palaces, castles and fairy tales. All in a beautiful town that makes you feel like you have fallen asleep and woken up in a fantasy book. Sintra is a picturesque Portuguese village, located in the center of the hills of the Serra de Sintra. Its slightly cooler climate attracted the nobility and elite of Portugal, who built exquisite palaces, extravagant residences and decorative gardens here. The variety of fascinating historic buildings and the beautiful landscapes have established Sintra as one of the best tourist destinations, as well as the most popular complementary trip from Lisbon. The historic center of the village, the National Palace, the Castle of the Moors and the Pena Palace is a must visit for its enchantment and its unique beauty.
