Walking Route | Santa Maria
Nature and heritage walks
Walking route that climbs to two of the most striking monuments of Sintra, the Moorish Castle and the Park and Palace of Pena, offering stunning panoramic views along the way. The route consists mainly of paved roads with even surfaces, through forested areas, with mostly gentle gradients and the occasional steep slope. It is suitable for all ages but requires a reasonable level of fitness.
The walking routes are one of the initiatives developed under the project BIO+Sintra, contributing to enhancing biodiversity in Sintra.
