There is so much to see outside the Lisbon city limits—think royal palaces, hilltop castles, wild coastlines, and mysterious standing stones, all easily explored on a guided day trip from the city. See below for our favorite day trip destinations.

Sintra & Cascais — 18 miles (29 km) from Lisbon
One of Portugal’s Seven Wonders, the Pena Palace (Palácio da Pena) stands on a hilltop on Portugal’s Atlantic coastline, just outside of medieval Sintra. Combine your visit to this Romanticist castle where Portuguese kings and queens once spent their summers with stops in the beautiful beach town of Cascais and at Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point in continental Europe.

Setubal & Arrabida Natural Park — 24 miles (39 km) from Lisbon
The mountainous Setubal Peninsula attracts day trippers with its golden beaches, Moscatel-producing wineries, and the lagoons and cliffs of Arrabida Natural Park. A day trip to the park affords travelers the opportunity to explore the fishing town of Sesimbra, take in sweeping views from Cabo Espichel, tour a Moorish castle, lounge on the beach, or head out for some dolphin watching.

Fatima — 79 miles (127 km) from Lisbon
Several traditional villages lie within easy reach of Lisbon, including Fatima, one of Christianity’s most sacred and significant pilgrimage sites. Day trips here include a visit to the Sanctuary of the Virgin Mary, where in 1917, an apparition of the Virgin Mary appeared to a group of children, as well as to the nearby towns of Óbidos, Nazaré, and Batalha. These combo day trips often last upwards of 9 hours.

Evora — 82 miles (132 km) from Lisbon
The ancient city of Évora is famous for the mysterious Neolithic standing stones of Almendres Cromlech and the classical Roman ruins found within the UNESCO-listed town. This longer day trip—upwards of 10 hours—is well worth the travel time for the chance to see the macabre Chapel of Bones (Capela dos Ossos) and Anta Grande do Zambujeiro, one of the world’s largest megalithic dolmens.
