This hike takes you to visit two wonderful gardens and its monuments.
“Capuchos”, probably the most important testimony of the Sintra primeval forest , preserved by the brotherhood of Franciscan friars and their austere monument carved in stone. Discover its secrets and mysteries, where even today it is said that “those who wish to penetrate the mystery of the convent must first die.”
“Montserrate”, which is one of the most beautiful creations of the Romanticism landscape, as well as it´s very beautiful palace. Immortalized by Lord Byron, “Monserrate” is one of the most famous and exotic Europe “Victorian” gardens.
Before the picnic in the “Monserrate” gardens, we will go through a pleasant and peaceful forest corridor with about 7km which link these two wonderful gardens and monuments.
The way back, although shorter, is no less beautiful, with the warm light of end of the day penetrating in the forest canopy and where we can also enjoy the forest that surrounds the “Lagoon of the Musketeers”, reflected in its calm waters.
Optional Experience: The way back will be much shorter because we have one more last experience waiting for us, a visit to the most western vineyard in Europe. This local farm, built in the 18th century, stands between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sintra sierra. Its wines are characterized by their aging-potential, their character and complexity. After visiting the vineyards and the winery, we will have a wine tasting where we will try some of the most enigmatic fine wines of Portugal, accompanied by local delicacies. Thanks to the proximity of the sea, this wines have a strong savory sea notes, being also very fragrant, fresh and balanced.Book Now Ask a Question
