Our todays tour we start in the train station of Sintra. Comming from the train station or the modern city center we follow the indication to the histoic city center and Palacio da Pena. Shortly before the Palacio Municipal, still very close to the train station we turn right downhill left side of the building of the Camara Municipal. After a few meters the road turns left over a ditch, but we follow downhill the smaller way on headcorner stones which leads us to Centro Cencia. Here we cross the main road with indication to Ribeira de Sintra. After crossing a little river we find ourselfs at a roundabout which we leave to the left. We follow the road for about 600 m and turn left into Caminho do Torrado. From now on we keep on stright and the way along a small crest leads us down to Colares. Dirt and asphalt take turns we keep up on in the same direction for about 4 km. Once we weach Mucifal we find a freshwater source and a minimercado on the left. Shortly after that we reach Colares and the streetcross to Sintra, Cascais and
A few hundred meter later we are back on the mainroad from Sintra to Cabo da Roca and later to Cascais
In Colares we find a street cross which indicates to Sintra, to Cabo da Roca and Cascais and to Praia da Macas and Azenhas do Mar.
In direction to Praia da Macas after only a few meter we find a little supermarket, a backery and a bank. In direction to Sintra a gas station.
A simple and calm way from the train station Sintra to Colares, partly on asphalt, but mainly on dirtroads.
Colares is a perfect place to go down to the coast or up to Monesterio de Capucho and Santuario da Peninha.
