“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.”

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.
