Trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
It’s a popular day trip from the tourist town Sintra and from Lisbon.
Most photographed is Cabo da Roca Lighthouse situated on a promontory that juts out into the ocean.
Many hike both north and south from here. Villages are conveniently connected by bus.
I actually took the bus from Sintra for some late afternoon day hiking. It’s crowded. But a lovely spot.

The other great hike is away from the Sintra National Palace itself. Up to the Pena Palace.
