  • Type: Walk Hike
  • Duration: About 6 hours | Difficulty: Moderate
  • Price from: 75€

Our walk begins in the most beautiful dam of the Sintra sierra. We will continue for a forest corridor until we enter in the mysterious “Path of the Druids.” Accompanied by a serpentine small river we will pass through several small wooden bridges until we start going up, through the dense forest, to the “Peninha“shrine.

It will be with the overwhelming view of one of the highest points of the “Moon Mountain” (Sintra), about 500m high, that we will do our picnic dinner, while the Sun and the Moon will present us two great moments, the farewell of the first behind the Atlantic, and the birth of the second in the clear skies of the sierra, all this with the enigmatic medieval setting provided by the “Peninha“ shrine and the chapel of “St. Saturnino” with almost 1000 years of history.

In the way down through a cedars forest, the silver light rays of the full moon will show us a more mysterious and simultaneously more intimate side of the Sintra forest. The next stage will be in the most typical village of Sintra, whose beginnings date back to the sixteenth century, the “Holy Spirit” village. Known for its countless fountains and streams, will be also here where, in a local cafe, we can have a nice cup of coffee / tea.

After, and along some horse breeders farms, we will enter again in a forest corridor toward to the “Capuchos” convent. Once here we will starting going down to the direction of the dam where this hike started. Although our hike ends where it began, the landscape, shaped by the moonlight night, will be quite different, giving us a beautiful final effect.
