“Make sure you leave enough time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A magical palace and garden designed by an Italian stage designer! WInding paths, sculptures, terraces, underground passages, grottos - mystical and mythical overtones surround you as you walk around the gardens.It is one huge theatrical set created in the nineteenth century. Interesting displays in the quinta show the designs and drawings which inspired its creation. The cafe is pleasant with an outdoor terrace on a warm day. You might like to bring a torch!

“Tripadvisor triumphs again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Good job I checked on Tripadvisor before our day out to Sintra, or we could have missed this place. It's magical, worth the money, unique, fun, stunning etc. Kids would love it too, but us Ladies Who Lunch were absolutely enchanted by it.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

An easy walk from the historic centre of Sintra is the beautiful Quinta da Regaleira. This grand building and beautiful gardens were full of interesting features. We easily spent three hours wandering happily. It was less crowded than Pena Palace but equally worthwhile.
