From Sesimbra to Óbidos, travelling near Lisbon is not only extremely practical, but should also be mandatory. It's a journey where every scenario is perfect for a road trip that will remain in your memory forever.

Starting in the south of Lisbon, you'll find Arrábida natural park and Arrábida mountains. During this journey you?ll be enveloped by the mountains and the sea in one of the most beautiful landscapes we have to offer. You can finish your day right next to this area, in Sesimbra, a fishing village where you can go for walks by the sea or seek adventure on your way to the castle.

For those who want to continue their journey or prefer to start in the north, be sure to stop at the Sintra mountains and Palácio Nacional da Pena (palace) for some romance and mystery, while also sweetening your taste buds with a traditional queijadinha. Before arriving there, you'll come across the town of Cascais, also located between the sea and the mountains.

Continuing the journey along the coast, we suggest that you stop in Peniche or head to the Berlengas archipelago by boat. Further inland, you can visit Óbidos, for a medieval journey among walls and castles.

All these places will amaze you during your trip to Portugal! Follow our tips for an even more unforgettable travel experience.

Too many wonderful experiences to single one out. Tram ride was fun, boat trip was invigorating, and there were plenty of delightful seafood options along with great Christmas market stalls.

Had very nice trips to Óbidos, Nazaré, Fátima and Belém. Had a chance to taste the famous Pastel de Nata in Belém. Óbidos is a very nice medieval small village that we would like to visit again.
