Sintra & Cascais, Portugal

Less than an hour’s drive west of Lisbon, you’ll find the UNESCO World Heritage–listed centre of Sintra. Once a summer escape for Portugal’s royalty, the town is dotted with fairytale palaces and enchanting old castles set amid picturesque landscaped gardens, making it a sight not to miss. Within close reach of Sintra is continental Europe’s westernmost point, the rugged, Atlantic Ocean-facing Cabo da Roca. And just South, lies the coastal beauty of Cascais, a beach town popular among locals and foreigners alike. Certainly a day trip worth doing when visiting Lisbon.
