A former royal retreat.
This is the location of a number of royal summer residences: Sintra is a small picturesque town in the mountains, around 30 kilometres west of Lisbon. It is the starting point of an AVIS Best Road, a spectacular twelve-kilometre-long route leading to the Atlantic coast. The two bloggers Inês Manique and Ana Sofia Reis are on the road in the Mercedes-Benz C 220 d heading for Praia das Maçãs, a surfer’s paradise and breathtaking beach on the Atlantic coast. Another of their destinations is Azenhas do Mar.
