PARQUE NATURAL DE SINTRA-CASCAIS
What to Do
CAR RIDE THROUGH THE PARK
You can start this car tour from the crossroads of Azóia and Cabo da Roca (EN 247 road). For those who come from Cascais, turn right and start going up the road into the range. After the first crossroads, go straight ahead in the direction of the Peninha convent. Here you can park your car and complete the rest of the route on foot along the road. Keep going all the way up to the Peninha convent, from which you can take in the incredible, breathtaking view. Back on the road, take the direction of Sintra.
PEDESTRIAN WALKS
The best way to take advantage of the mountain range is by taking walks. The Park’s centre (219 247 200. R Gago Coutinho, 1. Sintra. Closed on weekends and holidays) has a small booklet for sale with suggestions of walks and tours one can take. You can also find more information in the Tourism Offices in Cascais and Sintra.
Donkey rides are still an attraction to people of all ages (by the Peninha convent). The Sintra mountain range is also a good place for mountain bike enthusiasts.
