Lisbon is that city with a romantic air, as well as decadent, that falls in love with all the travelers who visit it. The city of fado, the delicious pastries of Bélem, the historic trams, the viewpoints on its seven hills or the Alfama neighborhood where you can find the essence of the real Lisbon, next to one of the most incredible cities in the world.
If you are more days than a weekend, you can also include excursions to some of the most beautiful cities and towns in Portugal such as Sintra, Cascais, Estoril, Óbidos or Fatima, which are not far away and are an ideal complement to the visit to the city.
You can visit all these places and towns on your own, but it is interesting, especially if it is your first time in the city, and you do not master Portuguese, do a tour or excursion in Lisbon with a guide in Spanish to learn more about its curiosities and history. We leave you a selection of what we think, are the 5 best tours and excursions in Lisbon in Spanish.
1. Excursion to Sintra, Cascais and Estoril
Sintra, the Portuguese city of gardens and fairytale palaces, a World Heritage Site and located in a natural park. One of its essentials is the Palacio da Pena which, with its color, is one of the places that you will surely have seen in thousands of photos. The Quinta da Regaleira is another of the wonders of the city, with its impressive gardens in which the initiatory pit is located, a stone pit with a spiral staircase.
Cascais, is an old fishing village located about 30 kilometers from Lisbon, which with good beaches and a historic center to get lost, is another of the best excursions in Lisbon.
In just over half an hour walking along the promenade you can reach Estoril, where you can see the famous Tamariz beach, the Casino and the Barros Chalet.
To get to Sintra from Lisbon you can do it by train from the Oriente Station, Rossio or Sete Rios, in a short time, since the journey takes only half an hour. From there you can travel by bus to Cascais. Another more comfortable option is to book a day trip by bus with a guide in Spanish and tour all three places.
