    What to Expect
    Begin your 7-hour sightseeing tour with pickup at your Lisbon hotel. Climb into a comfortable tour vehicle, where you can relax and enjoy the scenery on the trip to Sintra. 

    Your first stop is the Pena National Palace (Palacio Nacional da Pena), which is one of Portugal's most-visited monuments. If you like, you can pay the entrance fees and sign up for a guided tour of the 19th-century palace on the hill. 

    Stop midday for lunch at Praia das Macãs, where your guide will be happy to suggest a restaurant for a meal (own expense). Following lunch, visit a nearby viewpoint, Azenhas do Mar. 

    End your tour with a visit to the Convent of the Capuchos, also known as the Convent of the Holy Cross of the Sintra Mountains. Sign up for a guided tour if you'd like to have a look around the interior (own expense). 

    This small-group tour is limited to 15 people or fewer to ensure an intimate experience and plenty of personalized attention from your guide. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your Lisbon accommodations.

    Visited this intriguing Capuchin Franciscan convent and struck by its stark simplicity and tiny spacing. Garden most conducive to meditation.

    Beautiful Place! The vivid colors, the blending of architectural styles and the various details on the walls and furnishings make this palace a very luxurious and exquisite monument. If I ever return to Portugal I would like to visit again
