The Peninha convent is a beautiful structure that is almost in ruins, but is has some of the best views you can have around Lisbon. You should go by car, as no public transport will get you even close to this place. By car, it...More

Absolutely well worth a visit. Certainly out of the way but incredible. The views are amazing. This is not a tourist spot. It's defintely a place full of beauty and nature.

From here you can best see Cascais from top to the south. To the west you can see Cabo de Roca, the westernmost point in continental Europe. The small church was closed and there is not too much to do except enjoying the view. There...More
