Today’s route will take us south to the beautiful Cascais beach town. We will pass through some spectacular towns and enjoy breathtaking scenery. On our way, we’ll see Mafra, where we will see one of Europe’s largest and most extravagant palaces known as the Palacio de Mafra. This palace was built by King João V in 1717 to celebrate the birth of his first child.
However, the highlight of our ride will be in the second half when we ride through the Natural Park of Sintra and climb to the Sanctuary of Peninha, which is the highest point of the ride, standing at an altitude of 448 meters on top of a rocky outcrop. From here, we will enjoy stunning views of the coastline and inland areas. Lastly, we will descend towards the Guincho beach town and ride along the breathtaking coast.
