while in Lisbon, we decided to go on a day trip and explore the surroundings of Lisbon. we started early in the morning with a visit to Sintra, later followed by Cabo da Roca and the seaside resort Cascais.
/ I was amazed by this lovely town and its beautiful buildings, located just an hour away from Lisbon. it is very touristy since a lot of people choose Sintra as their day trip destination but that didn't stop us from enjoying its magic
Palácio Nacional da Pena
/ Sintra is famous for its palaces and castles but we only went inside one of them - the Pena National Palace. I'm so glad I was able to see this picturesque beauty with my own eyes, the palace is indeed super beautiful
Cabo da Roca
/ we took a bus to the westernmost point of Europe from Sintra and it was an adventure of its own, driving uphill all the time. going to Cabo da Roca was an incredible experience and looking out to the Atlantic ocean definitely felt a bit surreal
/ after our visit to Cabo da Roca, we continued our journey to Cascais - a seaside resort and a very charming town. the sky was overcast by the time we got there so that was a bit of a downer but other than that Cascais proved to be a lovely place to explore. the city beaches like Praia da Rainha were beautiful even with the cloudy skies and they must be exceptional in the summer when the sun is brightly shining
