Afterwards, head to the center of Sintra, where you can enjoy free time to enjoy the traditional pastries at a local tea house. You can even pay a short visit to the Village Palace, an 11th century palace, that has been transformed throughout the centuries and is now one of the most emblematic places of Sintra. Before lunch we will quickly pass on through the 18th century palace of Seteais and Quinta da Regaleira on your way to the Monserrate Palace and Park.
