SIXT Car Hire Sintra

SIXT car hire in Sintra is tailored towards the enjoyment of the town and its surrounding areas. Set on the lower slopes of the Sintra Mountains in Portugal, there are plenty of opportunities to hire something like an MPV and explore attractions off the beaten track above the town. Otherwise, a compact car will help around the older parts with streets built before cars were imagined. We carry premium vehicles with brands like Mercedes, BMW and Audi at accessible prices – with SIXT you get affordable luxury. Language won’t be a problem either, as all our branch agents speak fluent English. We’re conveniently situated near the main transport centre of Sintra.

What to do while in Sintra

The tourist hub of the town is the cobbled square of cafes, bars and shops outside the Palácio Nacional de Sintra. It’s in the old district of Sintra Vila and the palace itself has the unique conical twin chimneys that are the town’s hallmark. From there, make your way up to Castelo dos Muoros, the 8th-century Moorish castle on a craggy hill behind the old town area. Then take a drive into the foothills of Serre de Sintra to visit another local showpiece, the gardens of Monserrate.  

Summer 2021 in Sintra

Sintra car hire in summer will give you the chance to explore more of the surrounding countryside. Make sure to drive out to Convento dos Capuchos, a fascinating set of Franciscan monastic cells hewn into the Sintra hillside in the mid-1500s. If you want to hit the beach, Praia Grande (the Big Beach) is about a 20min drive from Sintra. Return in time for afternoon tea at the Palácio de Seteais, on a terrace overlooking the Atlantic.
