Overview
You can visit two of Portugal's most charming towns on a day trip from Lisbon that goes beyond the city to explore the Sintra Mountains, a place notoriously difficult to reach independently. You'll tour Sintra's Pena National Palace and the town's UNESCO-listed historic center, and than travel to the Atlantic coast to see Cascais and Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point in continental Europe.

Pena palace in sintra is really an amazing place on the top of hill in sintra. This palace originally constructed by Moorish dynasties but then expanded by Christians rullers. It's reality the best place must be seen in Portugal.
