The past months we’ve been writing about some of the best places and things to do in Lisbon. Although we just wrote a very small percentage of the thousands that exist, today we want to talk about the “life outside Lisbon“.

Just 30 minutes away from the Portuguese Captial, if you head in direction of the Atlantic you’ll find 2 of the most beautiful towns in Portugal – Sintra and Cascais.

LisbonSintra is a green mountain filled with history. Kings and Queens used to spend there their summer vacations, and left us the most amazing palaces and castles to visit and admire. Those were the first center of European Romantic Architecture, and know Sintra is considered World Heritage by UNESCO.

The must visit places in Sintra are the Pena Palace, the Moorish Castle and the Vila’s Palace and its surroundings where you can be delighted with the most amazing pastry, ans romantic walks.

In Cascais you will also find some histtory and architecture, but the main attractions are its beautiful beaches and landscapes.
