Call for trip pricing
Lindeza. It means prettiness in Portuguese. And it's the best way to describe what you'll see as you hike with family through Sintra and into the Douro River Valley. Breathtaking natural beauty. Green hills rolling down to the dazzling Atlantic coast. Moorish castles and pastel palaces. Richly colored red wines and the champagne hues of Vinho Verde. From Lisbon to Porto. Que lindeza. What prettiness.
