Beautiful park and palace! Totally different from all other castles and palaces in Sintra. Close to Quita da Regaleira and centrum of Sintra.

This is the 4th stop on the hop-on/hop-off bus from the Sintra historical town centre. The gardens are wonderful - laid out on terraces and different areas like the Mexican Garden, ornamental lakes and rose garden to name a few. A very pleasant tea house in the gardens serves a nice variety of food and has a shop as well.... More

A lovely palace that is still undergoing restoration. The gardens here are fantastic and offer the chance to just relax on the gardens near the palace. A must visit if you are in the area.

One of the most romantic places in Sintra, in Lisbon and surely in Portugal as well. One advice only, take an hour to get lost in its amazing garden.

A great place to visit. But take your walking shoes. Somequite hilly sections in the outer gardens area too. Although we did not use it there did seem to be some type of transportation system there.

We visited this attraction with family who are located in the Sintra area. The gardens are lovely and it is worth the sometimes hilly walk to cover all the grounds. The house has been beautifully restored and the guide is very useful.

Beautifull botanic park and excellent palace. Few people, better visit. We go by public bus and the bus line is very good, too.
