This time was great for revival of old Styles and new adaptation to an elaborate result. The palace is lovey allthough the interior is still in renovation; how this was left to decay is simply...

The building is impressive and the intricate details on the walls are amazing but with the place still in renovation (on their last room) it seemed a little bare and you only really got a feel of how grand it used to be from pictures (definitely their next step...

Monserrate is one of those places where you feel like you step back in time! After being restored to it's old glory it is even more mysterious!! It's a beautiful place to wonder and allow yourself to be amazed by it - by it's beautiful palace, with it's magnificent halls and corridors and by it's spectacular garden!! The palace itself...

Awesome Palace and Gardens - if you're in Lisbon you have to go there. Look at the website - the restoration is... More
