The Quinta do Pisão estate lies 30km west of Lisbon, and welcomes visitors free of charge who want to explore one of the many working farms still scattered through the region.
All around the 380-hectare agri-silvicultural and dairy farm, information boards tell you about the history of the land, as well as the wildlife you will come across during your walk or cycle ride. Filled with rich vegetation, the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park is home to all sorts of wild animals, including grey herons, common buzzards, genets and foxes.
At Quinta do Pisão, you will also get to meet the farm's Asinina Mirandesa donkeys and Alentejo sheep. After your tour, which focuses mainly on environmental issues and conservation, you will be offered a basket of organic vegetables grown in the farm's kitchen garden to take home with you. Little ones can enjoy a donkey ride, too - it promises to be a fun day out!
