Description

Embark on a journey towards the Sintra mountains. Take the historic tram and experience a 45-minute ride towards Praia das Maçãs along the valley of the Sintra Mountains In 1904 the tram connection between Sintra (railway station) and Praia das Maçãs was officially opened. This was a popular route to the beach and travel option for the high society in Sintra.

Afterwards you continue your journey to Azenhas do Mar. In the heart of Azenhas do Mar opens one of the most picturesque and photographed beaches in Portugal. This small bay enchants the city dwellers, who make themselves comfortable on their beach towels with a view of the Atlantic Ocean and the architecture bending over the rocky slopes.

Drive along the romantic Sintra mountain road to Mafra, where the 300th anniversary of the construction of the Mafra Convent will be celebrated in 2017.

The palace and convent of Mafra, once the hunting residence of the Portuguese kings and still almost unknown to tourists, form the huge building that makes the rest of the city look very small. The front facade of the palace extends over 250 meters, while the two bell towers, with 114 bells, stand 68 meters high above the city. 4700 windows and doors form one of the largest and most extravagant buildings in Europe and was built by the German architect Johann Friedrich Ludwig, from Schwäbisch Hall.

The basis for the novel of the 1998 Nobel Prize winner for literature José Saramago "The Memorial" is the dimensions of the Spanish Escorial. Saramago's novel revolves around the sacrificial building history of this oversized monument, for which a mountain peak had to be removed to make room for it.
