The Estoril coast is relatively close to Lisbon/Lisboa, the Portuguese capital; it extends 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) from the capital. Estoril is popularly recognized for the Casino Estoril, widely regarded as Europe's largest casino.
Cascais is a coastal municipality 30 kilometres (19 miles) west of Lisbon; it is a cosmopolitan suburb of the Portuguese capital and one of the richest municipalities of Portugal. It is located on the Estoril Coast (also known as the Portuguese Riviera), in the Greater Lisbon subregion.
Sintra is a municipality and town in the Grande Lisboa subregion of Portugal, and considered part of the Portuguese Riviera. Sintra is known for its many 19th-century Romantic architectural monuments, which has resulted in its classification as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has become a major tourist centre, visited by many day-trippers who travel from the capital Lisbon.
In addition to the Sintra Mountains and Sintra-Cascais Nature Park, the parishes of the town of Sintra are dotted with royal retreats, estates, castles and other buildings, including the medieval Castelo dos Mouros, the Pena Palace and the Sintra Palace.
The Sintra Mountains, a granite massif ten kilometres long emerge abruptly between a vast plain to the north and the northern margin of the Tagus River estuary, winding in a serpentine cordillera towards the Atlantic Ocean and Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of continental Europe. Since 1966, the Sintra Mountains have been affected by fires that have destroyed a major part of the original forest, which has been substituted by acacia and other fast-growing exotic species. The forested area of the Sintra mountains is about 5,000 hectares (50 km2).
Cabo da Roca (Cape Roca) is a cape which forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal and continental Europe. The cape is located within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, 42 kilometres west of the city of Lisbon and in the southwest of Sintra.
The Sanctuary of Christ the King (Portuguese: Santuário de Cristo Rei) is a Catholic monument and shrine dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ overlooking the city of Lisbon situated in the city of Almada, Portugal. It was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, after the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon visited that monument.
10 Top Tourist Attractions in Lisbon - Travel Video
The capital of sunny Portugal, Lisbon is situated at the point where the Tagus River estuary meets the Atlantic Ocean. As a travel destination, the riverfront city is as rich and varied as the country’s long history. From the ruins of a Moorish castle perched atop one of the city’s seven hills to a sidewalk café snuggled against an ancient Visigoth wall, remnants of Lisbon’s colorful past are everywhere. While Western Europe’s oldest city has taken steps to overhaul its transportation system, modernize its downtown area and revamp its waterfront, it’s the charm of Lisbon’s oldest neighborhoods that most attract visitors.
10 Days in Portugal: Lisbon, Algarve, Cascais, Sintra, Porto | The Travel Intern
Some of you guys were asking about Portugal ever since our Destination Unknown: Portugal episode was out! Well, fret no more, here is a comprehensive 10-day itinerary you can follow when you head over to the beautiful country:
Culture, beautiful architecture and nature. Portugal is definitely Europe's best kept secrets.
00:25 - Pasteis de Belem
Are you really in Portugal if you don't try a Portuguese egg tart? :-) We received so many recommendations from locals themselves to visit this place. It is actually one of the oldest Portuguese egg tart shops around!
00:33 - Belem Tower
00:36 - Jeronimos Monastery
These two sights are truly sights to behold. Learn more about the history of Lisbon here!
00:41 - Praco do Comercio
Kinda like the city hall area of Lisbon, locals and tourists alike gather here to window shop, watch buskers do their thangggg and simply just to chill.
00:47 - Santa Justa Lift
This lift was built in the past to ease the amount of stairs in the past, where you get to see a beautiful panoramic view of the city from the top! But remember that a lot of people want to head up there, so it's better to go during non-peak hours.
00:51 - Rua Nova do Carvalho
Known as the pink street of Lisbon, it used to be the area that housed the red light district of Lisbon in the past, but has since been converted to a home for cozy cafes and modern pubs and bars.
00:57 - The Sanctuary of Christ the King
A definite must-visit when you're in Portugal!
01:07 - Praia da Rocha
Amazing sunset views can be enjoyed from this beautiful beach. It does get pretty crowded, but there's always a space for everyone and anyone. :-)
01:13 - Wildwatch Tour — Benagil Cave
This boat tour includes a short kayaking session, one of the highlights is definitely kayaking into the Benagil Cave. It is known to be one of the most beautiful sea caves in the world!
01:30 - Pinhao Beach
Soak up some sun here, and navigate through cliff formations to get to different areas of the beach! Be careful of the tide level though.
CASCAIS & SINTRA
01:36 - Shoreline path of Cascais, Guincho Beach
If you're in Cascais, you definitely have to cycle along the popular shoreline path from downtown Cascais to Guincho Beach. The views you get of the shoreline are simply breathtaking.
01:44 - Pena Palace
Perched atop one of the highest points in the quaint city of Sintra, this palace was built and painted so colourfully so that it could grab everyone's attention no matter where you stood in Sintra.
01:50 - Moorish Castle
Built in the medieval times, the Moorish Castle served as a watchtower in the past.
01:55 - Quinta de Regalaria
It took us pretty long to find this place because it was nestled deep in the parks. But it was well worth it. There's just a mystical feel to it.
02:02 - Cabo da Roca
The westernmost point of Europe, here we have a lookout point with a beautiful lighthouse overlooking the ocean.
02:09 - Marisco na Praca
You can pick and choose from a seafood bar here, but be sure to try the seafood rice! It was our favourite.
02:17 - Sao Bento Railway Station
Get introduced to the beautiful azulejo tiles of Porto at the railway station here!
02:23 - Cafe Santiago
Just like in Lisbon, are you really in Porto if you haven't tried the local delight, Francesinha?
02:30 - Porto Cathedral
Discover one of the city's oldest cathedrals, open to public to simply sight-see or join in their service.
02:37 - Palacio de Cristal
We highly recommend setting up a picnic here, and catching the sunset overlooking downtown Porto.
02:46 - Duoro Valley Day Tour
Go on a wine-tasting day tour to try different kinds of port wine! If you fancy sweeter-tasting wines, this is definitely the tour for you to take.
02:51 - Livariao Lello
This bookstore is said to have inspired JK Rowling to start on the Harry Potter series. There is an entrance fee and a long queue to get in though, so be prepared!

You'll get to see thousands of tiles lining the walls of buildings all across Porto, why not make your own too? Learn from a local in Porto!
