Sintra and Cascais Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon

1,858 reviews
Unless you rent a car, traveling between the dispersed landmarks of Sintra and Cascais is a difficult task. Journey along Lisbon’s Atlantic coast with ease on a small-group day trip, limited to just eight people to guarantee personalized attention from your guide. Take a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed Pena National Palace, enjoy time at your leisure in the historic center of Sintra, and stop at the affluent coastal town of Cascais.

Wow this building is massive, when I stood in front of it I was in total awe! Unfortunately only the exterior can be viewed now, as it's currently closed for tourists as part of the ongoing covid-19 restrictions, also the church which is normally free to visit, is now locked :-( There's a beautiful park in front, with a big fountain that's illuminated at night, check it out!

There used to be an ancient library here. That used to be a drawing card. Now, the drawing is not there as it is just your average church, not a tourist attraction.

This was the highlight of our trip to Belem. Entry to the church is free but you will pay €10 for the cloisters. Unless you're on a very tight budget, don't skip the cloisters. It is just so beautiful and the gloomy, dark church does not prepare you at all for the magnificence of the cloisters and monastery grounds. Commissioned by King Manuel I in 1501, the monastery is lavishly decorated with ornate stonework that incorporates all sorts of maritime motifs and animal figures with regal and Christian symbols. This is where the great Portugese seafarers, explorers and navigators like Vasco de Gama came for confession and spiritual guidance immediately before launching off on long and treacherous voyages to chart new lands. TICKETS & LINES: * Avoid Mondays – it's not open * The combo Monastery/Belem Tower ticket no longer exists. Our guide book still showed it as available even though we had the latest edition. * In hindsight, I wish we had bought the Lisboa 1 day Card for our trip to Belem. At €20, it would have given us free entry to the tower, monastery and coach museum and also free travel, saving us at least €10pp. * There are 2 lines, the longer line on the right is for free entry to the church and the left hand line is for the cloisters. Frustratingly, the cloisters ticket, doesn't give you any advantage in getting into the church. You have to exit the monastery grounds and line up again. The church line gets very long. If you're there early, I'd recommend visiting the church first when the line is likely to be shortest. * the ticket office is not immediately obvious. We joined the monastery queue, thinking this was for tickets and wasted some time before we realised our mistake. The ticket office is over to the left of the queue, by the museum entry.

This has been the highlight of our Lisbon trip. It really is mind blowing! Construction began in 1501 and was completed in 1601. The stone 'lace work' is Incredible! A must visit if in Lisbon. Closed on Sundays!
