At the end of the morning, there is free time to wander the streets of Sintra (a UNESCO classified Cultural Landscape) that enchanted kings and inspired poets and to appreciate some of the handicraft shops and tea-rooms serving up delicious local sweets, including “queijadas” and “travesseiros”. Leave for Colares*, a demarcated region recognised for its quality table wines, continuing onwards until Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point on continental Europe, passing the beach of Guincho until Hell’s Mouth and always enjoying the sea framed landscapes until Cascais and a brief visit to this coastal town. You return to Lisbon along the Estoril Coast with panoramic views of the Casino and its gardens.

Then you head on to Alcobaça to visit the Monastery Church (UNESCO World Heritage Site), both the longest and the first church built entirely in the gothic style in Portugal, where lie the tombs of D. Pedro and D. Inês de Castro. You lunch is served in Nazaré, the most typical and colourful of Portuguese fishing villages. Whenever possible, continue onto Sítio with its beautiful views over the beach and the ocean beyond.

One day spent discovering the town of Évora, a mosaic of culture, history and traditions. Leaving Lisbon, you cross the bridge over the river Tagus and head through a beautiful and bucolic landscape of olive trees, cork oak trees and vineyards before arriving at Évora – UNESCO World Heritage Site.
