What we’ll do

If you like history and don't mind to walk, Mr P's will, dressed in full 18th century attire, walk you through not only Sintra's historical center but also through Portugal's history ! Once you meet up Mr P in front of Sintra's train station (the last one of its line) he'll walk with you through Sintra's historical center ending the tour at Seteais Palace, a late 18th / early 19th century…

What else you should know

You might wonder about the late hour and I can only tell you that during the day the intense heat and the amount of tourists that visit Sintra everyday make the streets unbearable to walk.

What to bring

Comfortable shoes to walk
Water to drink
Something to nibble? Fruits for example, peanuts, etc

Where you'll be

Once decided the meeting point, Mr P will walk you through Sintra's Vila Velha, show you the National Palace from the outside, heading toward Church of St Martin, Lawrence Hotel (one of the oldest hotels in the Iberian Peninsula), Quinta dos Pisões, Quinta do Relógio, Quinta da Regaleira ending the tour at Palácio dos Seteais where we can visit its gardens and look at the views (namely Pena e Mafra National Palaces)
