From the Bay to the Hills

From the Bay to the Hills

The world famous cliff and rough seas of Boca do Inferno (Devil’s Mouth) is followed by Guia Lighthouse, a building dating from the 18th century and one of the first lighthouses to light up Europe’s seas.

After this cultural session, head out to Guincho beach, one of the region’s most colourful beaches due to the large number of windsurfers and surfers who come here to challenge the sea.
Following the beach, take a journey back in time by visiting the museum housed within the S. Jorge de Oitavos Fort, a recreation of daily military life in an 18th century fortification.

It’s now time to follow the road to Malveira da Serra in the direction of Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of continental Europe. At the tourist office you can obtain a certificate of your visit to this site. 

Serra de Sintra


Take the Serra de Sintra road and descend to the coast, passing by the village of Almoçageme and the beaches of Praia Grande and Praia das Maçãs. The tour then continues north in the direction of Azenhas do Mar and Fontanelas.

Head past Fachada and contemplate the entire length of the Sintra hills. Then take the Estrada Ribeira, following the tram route that links Praia das Maçãs to the centre of Sintra town. Once here, make sure you visit the Modern Art Museum, the Toy Museum and the Vila Palace.
