Sintra-Cascais Nature Park
Sintra-Cascais Nature Park is UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Landscape since 1995. From Paleolithic to successive Romans, Visigoths and Arabs occupations, the Park is full of historic treasures. Sintra was elected as spiritual retreat of Bourgeois and Nobles in the 18th century and Cascais their vacation spot. The mix of cultural and historical identity creates a unique atmosphere that culminates in the natural surroundings that make the Park so singular. The massif is a natural barrier against winds and creates a micro climax associated with different soil compositions that allows the development of very diverse vegetation. The oldest sedimentary rocks were deposited there 160 million years ago. We will discover the luxurious vegetation and soon head towards the most western point of continental Europe where we will hike the cliffs, discovering awesome land (and sea) scapes.
