This adventure combines the best of both worlds. We’ll drive through historic Sintra town, turning off-road to reach the incredible 12th-century Santuario da Peninha. From the convent on the hill enjoy incredible and expansive views down to Cascais, Lisbon, Sintra while you lace up those boots. This two-hour hike wanders through (what we think is) one of the most amazing and mystical forests in the world. Up here on the mountain, a microclimate allows all types of plants and trees from around the globe to grow, from pines to ferns, plus some mysterious secrets. Halfway through the forest walk we’ll reach a megalithic structure that is essentially Portugal’s Stonehenge. Sitting 426 metres above sea level, its origins are a real mystery but there are theories. Next we’ll uncover an ancient collective grave from between 2500-1500BC that has its fair share of myths and legends surrounding it.
