Along the Marginal road beside the Atlantic Ocean and the Tagus River, we reach the village of Cascais, a charming town that is one of the most appreciated tourist destinations, by nationals and foreigners, for its mild climate, beautiful beaches, with varied landscape and gastronomy. We follow the coast, passing by Guincho beach, much sought after for water sports such as surfing and windsurfing. As we continue to skirt the coastline we reach Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe. Luís de Camões described it as the place “where the land ends and the sea begins” (in The Lusiadas).

We then see Azenhas do Mar, a village on the coast in Portuguese Soft Style, which at its lowest point has a beach where there is an ocean swimming pool. We continue along the fantastic coastline, between cliffs and beaches, some crowded but others still in their wild and natural state, which are truly enchanting places. After a lunch break we resume our tour by getting to know Ericeira, 1st Surfing Reserve in Europe and 2nd in the world. A touristic village known for its blue and white colours. It was in this village that the royal family embarked into exile in England. In this Ericeira – ‘’where the sea is bluer’’.

We end our tour with a visit to the Palace and convent of Mafra, a masterpiece from the eighteenth century, the most important monument of the Portuguese Baroque, unique for its two carillons with 92 bells, 1200 rooms, over 4,700 doors and windows and the oldest library in Portugal with about 36,000 volumes.

Our guide will accompany you along the way, sharing stories and curiosities about the places visited.
