Tour description

Our Sintra Free Walking Tour was created to offer you the very essence of Sintra. Garden by garden, church by church, we will reveal to you the city that the Romans named the mountain of the moon, Byron spoke of as a glorious Eden and Strauss the true garden of Klingsor. This walk is ideal as an introduction to the villa and city and we will have many tips and recommendations to share. An enthralling tour to celebrate such a rare place. We will visit Sintra’s historical center and many of its foremost sites like the National Palace, the Quinta da Regaleira or the Palace of Seteais. Moors, Templars and Masons will be mentioned as well as more trivial things like the mouth-watering queijadas or the scrumptious travesseiros.
Join us and discover the most romantic villa of the world.
Useful information:
Please note that the Castle of the Moors and the Pena Palace are too far away from the center of the villa to be visited. Many guests do visit these sites after the tour.

Ricardo ha sido un guía de lo más divertido. Nos ha dado una buena lección de historia y leyenda, mezclada con la actualidad y con un toque bromista. Lo mejor, al final del recorrido se supo cada uno de los integrantes del grupo, éramos como 25.
