Directions to OH Casa Sintra
Map & Directions
Sintra has really good transport connections from Lisbon.
By train from Lisbon (40 minutes)
There are cheap trains leaving every 20 minutes from Rossio Train Station. From Rossio, catch the Sintra train all the way to Sintra Station (the final station - not Portela de Sintra which is the second to last station).
By train from Lisbon Airport (1 hour)
Take the Red Line (linha vermelha) Metro from the Airport to Oriente Station. At Oriente change to the train (comboio) line and ask for the next train to Sintra - sometimes there is a direct train, other times you will need to catch a train to Cacém Station and swap to a train going to Sintra.
From Sintra Station (4 minutes walk)
Exit the 'Sintra' Train Station and turn right on Av Dr. Miguel Bombarda. About 250m from the station the road curves to the right and turns into R. Dom Francisco de Almeida. Follow R. Dom Francisco de Almeida for about 100 m until you reach rua Gago Countinho. The big beautiful green house you see on your right is us. Come on in!
By car from Lisbon Airport to Oh Casa Sintra
If you come by car, don't forget to reserve your free carpark!
Drive out the airport and get onto the IC 19. Drive all the way to Sintra which is about 25km away. Stay on the IC 19 until it becomes the N249 (Rua Elias Garcia). At the round about (you will see a big BP gas station), take the first exit. At the next roundabout, also take the first exit (Largo Chão de Meninos), follow it for about 1,2 km. Continue onto R. Dom Francisco de Almeida (you will pass by a small BP gas station) until Rua Gago Coutinho appears on your left. We are the green house (No 2), just park in front of the gate. Come on in!
Note that there are two Rua Gago Coutinhos in Sintra, so if you're using a GPS it is better to use the coordinates 38.800442,-9.382597
