Night hike Mysterious Sanctuaries, Sintra

FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!


Length: 5 miles. Difficulty: Easy / Moderate.
Duration: 2H30 to 3H00.

The Sintra landscapes, heritage, history and mystery make it one of the most beautiful places in the world. The town is world heritage and the surrounding mountains covered in palaces, castles and strongholds that have stood strong for centuries. Once is was the favourite vacation destination of royal Portuguese and their European allies and it became the most loved romantic setting for the English writer Lord Byron, who spent many years here. The Adrenunes Dolmen are possibly lesser known than the magnificent palaces that have been built here in the last 1000 years. The Adrenunes Dolmen, from the megalithic period, were used as a collective tomb. It is a collection of impressive high rising stones set on a mysterious mountain often covered in mist, to visit this area at night is a magical unforgettable experience.

After sunset on Peninha, we will start our night journey that will take us to the old chapel of St. Saturninus, and through the Forest of the Cedars to the valley of the ‘Rio Touro’, until we reach the mysterious megalith of AdreNunes.
The route is ‘circular’ returning by different path and bypass the Picotos and been flowing into the Park Picnic of Peninha.
Along this route we passed several interesting sites, such as the Sisters Rocks (they are ‘boulders’, rounded blocks of granite with an average height of 5 meters), and visits to leisure and entertainment areas, with very nice shadows and relaxing, as in the Park Picnic of Peninha. But in Adrenunes we have another way of milestones.
On top of a hill, 426 meters above sea level, there is a structure made up of small boulders, through which opens a gallery with five meters high and that may have been used as collective tomb durin the megalithic era.
Checking the arrangement of stones in relation to the setting of the sun, at sunset, the moon and the Cabo da Roca, relatively close, it can be concluded to be a natural megalithic structure, which support each other stones but where, subsequently, there was human intervention.
This hike has a difficulty level of easy to moderate.
The guides speak English as well as Portuguese.
