Sintra with Heritage Tours

Day Trip

A day trip to nearby Sintra, located in a national park 30 minutes west of Lisbon, is a classic addendum to any vacation to the Portuguese capital city. Travelers have long been seduced by its fairy tale castles and palaces, most of which have housed Portuguese royalty for centuries. Visits to Sintra are popular and most sights can be crowded. New York-based Heritage Tours can organize helicopter flights over the region, providing amazing views of the castles, palaces, and the woodlands of Sintra, or even a private dinner catered by a top Portugal chef inside Monserrate Palace. If you're on your own, stop for lunch at Furnas do Guincho in Cascais.
