Lisbon and Sintra Tour

On the first day of our tour, we start with a visit to Lisbon, Alfama the oldest part of Lisbon, with its alleys and alleys, an old Arabian Medina.

In Baixa de Lisboa the most devastated neighborhood with the great earthquake we will understand the importance of Pombaline architecture, with buildings reconstructed in a completely different way, a wider area with many streets and squares, this already foreseeing a another earthquake, crossing Avenida da Liberdade until we reach Marquês de Pombal square where we will stop by Parque Eduardo VII and try to understand the relationship and treaties between Portugal and England.

We then proceed to Sintra, we suggest a visit to the Queluz Palace the palace where the Portuguese Royal family was living when Portugal was Invaded by Napoleon, who “forced” them to move the capital to Brazil, where was born Dom Pedro IV of Portugal , who at the same time was Dom Pedro I of Brazil. With a Rococo style where its fantastic uneven gardens stand out, well disguised by the sequence of terraces and galleries with Tuscan columns, topped by a monumental staircase.

The center of Sintra, with its alleys where countless Portuguese handicraft stores await you, as well as the famous local pastry  “Travesseiro de Sintra”, free time to enjoy this wonderful place.

If your Palace option to visit is not the Queluz then can visit one of Sintra’s many options, among them;

  • National Palace of Sintra,
  • Pena Palace,
  • Quinta da Regaleira,
  • Monserrat Palace,
  • Castle of the Moors.

Arriving at Cabo da Roca (westernmost point of the European continent), we will visit these important places where the 165 meter high lighthouse built in 1772, demonstrates the importance of this place.

The village of Cascais a beautiful bay with plenty of small fishing boats, the place chosen by the Portuguese royal family for holidays that ended up dragging all the nobility, free time to explore this small village,that attracts thousands every year.

Always flanking the sea and after a brief visit to Estoril, we arrive at Belem, the place that best describes the period of Portuguese maritime expansion, from which courageous Portuguese explorers came out in the 15th century discovering the sea routes to India, Africa and Brazil, commemorating this glorious past, financed by the vast wealth that flowed to Portugal from the colonies.

Here we will then visit its three important monuments; The Belem Tower, Jerónimos Monastery and the Sailors monument, the last stop will be at the Belem pastry  to taste this fabulous conventual egg custard tart that attracts millions every year.

2ºDay

Fatima, Batalha, Nazare and Obidos

Considered by millions to be one of the most important Marian Shrines in the world, the Shrine of Fátima, leaves no one indifferent, here we will pay homage to our Lady, visiting the two Basilicas, Basilica of Nossa Senhora do Rosario built in 1928 with neo-baroque architecture, here you will find the tombs of the three shepherds  (Francisco and Jacinta), and  the tomb of Sister Lucia, who died in 2005 and Basilica of the Holy Trinity built in 2007 with more than 8,000 places and 40,000 m² of area designed by the Greek architect Alexandros Tombazis, without forgetting the Chapel of Apparitions, the first Chapel to be built right after the apparitions.

We continue our day to the Monastery of Batalha , the best example of Gothic architecture in Portugal, built in the 14th century we hope with this visit to understand the importance of this battle in the independence of Portugal over the Spanish.

In Nazare one of the most charismatic fishing villages in Portugal, where fish are still dried on the beach, and where the tradition of the “seven skirts” ladies remains. Today Nazare is also known for its giant waves, when in 2013 the American surfer McNamara broke the world record by surfing a wave of about 30 meters.

Time now to visit Obidos where we will travel back in time to medieval times, explore its beautiful and narrow whitewashed streets, still used in the Templar period as a defensive pentagon of the five Castles, until it was used as a wedding gift from D. Dinis to his wife D. Isabel, making Obidos part of Casa das Rainhas.

In Obidos we will try the famous cherry liqueur in a chocolate cup, curious?
