Byron's Sintra


Extended walks through the Sintra mountain range will take you to the Convento dos Capuchos and ultimately to Brother Honorius's cave, a landmark in Childe Harold's pilgrimage.

Quick Tips:

Do not forget to visit the castelos, not that you would.

Best Way To Get Around:

Go by train from Lisbon. Be warned that the Rossio station is currently closed, so you must take the Sintra train from another location.
