Sintra, Sierra of Secular Mysteries

  • Type: Walk Hike
  • Duration: About 6 hours | Difficulty: Moderate
  • Price from: 80€

Come with us to meet a more mystical and occult Sierra de Sintra side, World Heritage by UNESCO, and feel what is considered the most beautiful and mystical Portuguese sierra. On this tour, we will meet its people and their customs.

We take you to some of the Sierra highest points, like the “Peninha” shrine and marvel with the infinite views. Discover its secrets and mysteries.

We will meet 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, is here that we will do our lunch in a rural tavern where we can taste the local food.

After the meal, and along some horse breeders farms, we will enter again in a forest corridor toward the “Capuchos” convent, where we will finish our hike.

Optional Experience: The day will finish in 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, 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. Thanks to the proximity of the sea, these wines have strong savory sea notes, being also very fragrant, fresh and balanced.
