The Baroque Convent, the Jampal Cast and the “Saloia” Region

  • Type: Walk Wine
  • Duration: 09:00 am to 09:00 pm (with the dinner option)
  • Price from: 154€

Our day starts in the majestic Royal Convent and Palace of Mafra, built in the 18th century by order of King João V (1689-1750). This is the most important baroque monument in Portugal, and one of major baroque edifications in all Europe. The building, approximately with 40.000 m2 stands out for its grandeur. The Library, occupying the largest and most prestigious room in the building, is one of the most monumental and beautiful libraries in the world. The Royal Convent of Mafra has a set of two carillons, or rather a series of bells tuned to each other. There are actually ninety eight bells in all, which makes them the world’s largest historic carillons.

The lunch will be in a typical restaurant of this “Saloia” region, where we will taste the delicious local food.

After this comforting meal we will go to a local wine producer to taste a very unique wine, produced exclusively from the Jampal caste. We will also see their vineyards, cellar and a small but curious local wine museum.

The way back to Sintra will be in a road along the coast, where we will have the opportunity to see the Atlantic ocean endless views.

The end of the day, and before dinner, will be free, where our participants can discover the beautiful and romantic town of Sintra, world capital of the 19th century Romanticism movement and UNESCO World Heritage. The dinner will be in a traditional restaurant located in the town of Sintra Village. The cozy atmosphere, the home cooking food, and the good wine, will be the perfect way to finish this day.
