We love Sintra. Like, really LOVE it. But even we can admit It has one big problem. Once you start exploring this enchanting patch of the world, it’s almost impossible to stop, and we know a lot of you don’t have the time to spend days and days exploring every last forest track like we did as kids. Luckily, you still have time to see a mysterious garden and palace, surrounded by metaphor and myth, that many think is even more spectacular than its more famous red-and-yellow cousin. We’re talking about Quinta da Regaleira. With our jeep we’ll drive by historic palaces (Sintra National Palace, Seteais Palace, Monserrate, Pena Palace) and the 8th-century Moorish Castle, sharing the best legends and facts about each monument before stepping inside the magical Quinta da Regaleira. Afterwards you’ll have worked up an appetite – and we couldn’t let you leave here without tasting Sintra’s own traditional sweet pastry. Our half-day journey finishes at 1.30pm.
