Azenhas do Mar


Azenhas do Mar is a small seaside town found in the Sintra Municipality. ( Sintra – Santa Maria and São Miguel, São Martinho and São Pedro de Penaferrim is a civil parish in the municipality of Sintra, Lisbon District, Portugal. )

It is  30 km from Lisbon.The easiest way to get to this village is to come by car. I really recommend renting a car at the airport for the day or more as it is the best way to get there.

You can visit the Pena National Palace in Sintra . The palace is located on the top of a hill above the town and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Two other palaces are Monserrate and Seteais. Cabo da Roca is another attraction you should visit. It is a beautiful cape with a view to the Atlantic Ocean. Quinta da Regaleira is another UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a spraling estate also known as “The Palace of Monteiro the Millionaire” and is considered one of the principal tourist attractions of Sintra. Some people insist that having dinner at restaurant Azenhas do Mar, yes same name as the village, while watching the sun set, is an ideal way to end the evening.

Outdoor activities : Hiking , Mountain biking  Access : To get to Azenhas do Mar, take a train playing the Lisbon-Sintra route. Just opposite the train station in Sintra, there is a bus terminal.  bus number 441 or 440  will take you roughly 35 minutes to reach Azenhas do Mar by bus.
