About Us

We organize trips to all the interesting and historical points of Sintra: Pena Palace, the Moorish Castle, Regaleira Palace and Monserrate Palace and Gardens among others, through the wonderful roads of the Sintra Mountain. Your trip can also be tailor-made to suit your needs and interests (visits to the country-side with a picnic-lunch or transfers to restaurants for dinners, etc.).
VIP-services and decorated carriages for weddings or other special events can easily be arranged upon request.

Our carriages can be found daily in the Historical Centre of Sintra, in front of the National Palace from 10 am to 6 pm in the summer months and 11am to 5 pm in the winter months. Any other hour is also possible for a service with prior arrangement. In the summer months you will find a Sintratur pr-person near the horses to help you choose a trip best suited for you and to answer any of your questions.

Even though we are based in Sintra, we frequently dislocate to other parts of the country with special transport to serve our clients.

Our horses are used to climbing up and down the mountain, and to make this task easier, most all of them use special rubber-coated shoes. To help keep Sintra clean, they use special diaper-bags to collect the dejects.

Having been declared an activity of historical and cultural interest to Sintra, the City Hall inspects our carriages, horses and activity on regular bases.
