Know More about this tour

Your journey begins with a morning pickup at your hotel in Lisbon, Cascais, Ericeira or Sintra. From there, enjoy a brief ride to Mafra, about 40 minutes from Lisbon, in your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle with free Wi-Fi on-board.

Mafras convent or Mafra's national palace as it is called is a masterpiece from the eighteenth century and one of the most important monuments of Portugal, unique for its two carillons with 92 bells, 1200 rooms, over 4,700 doors and windows and the oldest library in the country with about 36,000 volumes of books and transcripts. If you think this is a lot of information, wait to hear everything your guide has to tell you about the biggest monument in Portugal.

After Mafra venture to the quaint Portuguese one of a kind village of Jos Franco. This man was a sculptor and a poet who decided to build a living museum to show the customs, labor activities and other aspects of Portuguese rural life back in his time - 1945. The result is a giant museum made into a village that draws attention not only to preserve the memory of an era, but also for the perfectionism in small details.

Next we head to Ericeira the village where the royal family embarked into exile to England and in another completely different scene - the first World Surfing Reserve in Europe and 2nd in the world, a touristic village also known for its blue and white colored streets and houses. In Ericeira where the sea is bluer enjoy your free time, for possibly a leisurely Portuguese lunch (not included) or a stroll through the town and by the seaside while you sink in this Vilas different scenarios a rural fishing village full of history and at the same time a touristic center of Surf.
