Steep cliffs, deep valleys and high mountains will make you sweat. Breathtaking views are guaranteed. Discover the diverse flora here at Serra de Sintra.
Self-guided trip to Sintra
You can’t really come here without taking a trip to Sintra. The small yet picturesque town has lots of crooked alleys that have a lot to offer for those keen on culture but also those looking for some souvenirs. Palaces, fortresses and castles: there are numerous cultural and historic attractions here. You can walk through the town however you like and on your own. Make sure to try some portuguese food too. It’s almost a shame that there is only one day allocated for visiting SIntra, the little town at the foot of the Sierra de Sintra coastal mountains.
