Stop At: Park and National Palace of Pena, Estrada da Pena, Sintra 2710-609 Portugal
Upon your arrival in Sintra, the first challenge is to become acquainted with its quintessential symbol or the Pena National Palace. Perched atop a hill and overlooking the entire city, this 19th-century construction was created on the site of a former Hieronymite monastery by a German architect. Today it throws you back in the Romanticism era when the Portuguese royals used to isolate themselves from the urban hustle and bustle in the summertime. Repainted in its original red and yellow colors at the end of the previous century, the flamboyant palace seems to have few rivals in terms of exotic charm throughout the country.

Stop At: Quinta do Relógio, Av. Marginal, 2770-156 Paço de Arcos, Portugal
Situated near the center, Quinta do Relogio presents another must-visit destination on Sintra itinerary. The estate comprising the main palace with a dreamlike appearance and several neighboring residences is immersed in its surrounding park famous for the original fauna species. The 18th-century architecture providing a mix of the Moorish and Neo-Manueline styles with explicit Romanticism connotations leaves unbiased almost no one.

Stop At: Sintra, Sintra, Sintra Municipality, Lisbon District, Central Portugal
After climbing the tops of marvelous Sintra, it is time to descend to no less impressive old town center. The latter is both simple and exquisite with its fascinating National Palace that dominates the whole area. The whitewashed building dating back to the Moorish era underwent many alterations during the past centuries when it was considered the summer residence of the Portuguese royal families. The Islamic-Manueline architecture hosts a Historic House Museum today. The old town is also going to gratify your needs with multiple boutique shops and cafes scattered over there.

Stop At: Colares, Colares, Sintra Municipality, Lisbon District, Central Portugal
Sintra’s neighboring region of Colares is also worth your precious time. Located closer to the Atlantic Ocean it boasts rather fertile and specific soils that made the whole area appropriate for vineyards and wine-making. Made from the Ramsico grape the local red wine not making part of Portugal’s well-developed wine-making tradition still maintains its old fame.

Stop At: Estrada Cabo da Roca, Colares 2705-001 Portugal
In case you are on the lookout for more exotic vibes, PortugalViews has a couple of places in store for you.

Cabo da Roca offers a relatively unpopulated area merging with the ocean. Here you can witness various low-lying plant species accustomed to the local windy climate, migratory birds and the famous lighthouse standing 150m high above the waterside. Solely a couple of shops are supposed to attract your attention while there.
