    Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides

    The horse-drawn carriages of Sintra are one of the classic features of the romantic town.

    They are reminiscent of past times when kings, noblemen and the rich bourgeoisie strolled through those parts. In a place filled with references to nobility, enjoying a horse-drawn carriage ride in Sintra as a modern-day aristocrat becomes rather tempting.

  • Tram Ride

    Tram Ride

    The Sintra Tram is a classic feature in the region.

    At first the train, which became operational in 1904, provided a much-needed service between the town and Praia das Maçãs. Later, as a result of improvements in communications and individual transportation, it was abandoned.

    Today it operates as a tourist attraction and still links the town with Praia das Maçãs.

    It is a 13 km journey that takes approximately 45 minutes through vegetation which provides some much appreciated shade. Plane trees, vines and orchards impart some coolness to the journey.

    The carriages are either open or closed but they are all red and the journey is bound to take you back to a bygone era.
