Trail Description

A circular path in the urban area, from the Historic Centre to São Pedro to Estefania and back, it passes by the most famous pastry shops and cafés in Sintra. It uses normal roads, mainly cobblestone and asphalt, going on back roads whenever possible, avoiding the ones with more traffic. It gives you a good glimpse of Sintra, whether or not you wish to indulge your sweet-tooth. Some of the cafés you will pass include SAPA, Piriquita, Café Natália, Casa do Preto, Pastelaria Gregório, Pastelaria Monserrate, and Café Saudade. It is marked to start from the City Hall Palace near the Sintra station, but you can start it just as easily from the Historic Center.

Our suggestions
  • Try out a few of the pastries, and buy some to take home as a gift!
