“I LOVED THIS PLACE!!!!!!! AMAZING!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Words do not even describe this place!! I LOVED it!! There are caves, grotto's, lakes, wells and fountains all over this property and they let you explore all if it!! It's very cool!! We spent 2 hours walking the grounds and about 20 minutes in the actual castle just because the grounds are like something I have never seen before in all my life!! It's very magical!! We got great exercise climbing towers and taking hidden tunnels that seem to just keep going and going. It was so fun!! Just be careful when exploring so you don't have any slips or falls when climbing stairs =) I can't wait to go back one day!!!!!!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!

“Enchanted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

This was my favorite castle in Sintra. I was completely blown away by the grounds and the architecture - Manuelin. It was romantic and the energy of it was palpable. Highly recommend a walk around

“Full of little secrets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Quinta da Regaleira look like it came out from a book. It's a magical place.
I went there with a tour guide on a small group. The guide just left us by the door and gave us some time (about 1 hour and a half) to explore the place.

To be able to look around we had to power walk, therefore I strongly recommend planning to stay for at least 3 hours.

The library is so cool - There are mirrors on the floor so it looks like it's floating.
And the passages, and tunnels are incredible.
I would really like to go back and take my time walking around.
