Go to Peña first! Once you see this nothing in Sintra will measure up!
Nov 2021 • Solo
I had high expectations and boy was I surprised?! This place is A•making in so so so many different ways. It has everything you wish for and then some. It’s a journey thru a castle, a labyrinth, a pond, caves, multiple amazing gardens, and then more! I ended up spending way more time that I thought (approx 3 hours) because of its multidimensionality.

Make sure you to to Peña first because once you see this nothing else in Sintra will measure up.

Bottom line: A MUST go!

Magic place
Nov 2021
Our visit to Quinta de la Regaleira wasn't spontaneous. We read a lot about this place. Reality exceeded expectations. Everything was fantastic: buildings, air, view ...
I believe that the only one place on a planet where you can see reverse tower is here. Place must be visited while in Portugal.

Beautiful and Unusual
Nov 2021 • Couples
The Pena Palace, while most prominent, is just 1 of 2 must do activities in Sintra. This place is unusual and presents yet another insight into the history of Portugal. While the family’s influence was relatively short, it was impactful.

The property is beautiful and unusual, walking that line between genius and madness. The ability to explore the grounds is a treat for the eyes and imagination.

Note - parking is a serious problem. We had a driver who dropped us off. Would think twice before trying to drive a private car here.

Beautiful Views

Wear your walking shoes and wander the various paths up and down the hillside. Enjoy the many varieties of plants. There are sculptures , architecture, and even a winding tunnel staircase.

Seeing is bejieving!
Nov 2021
Only a short walk from the center of Sintra and set in grounds too big to cover. We walked around the grounds and only looked at the more important places. The grounds contain grottos,caves,tunnels lakes and much much more. It would be a loss not to see this palace.

Breathtaking
Oct 2021
A beautiful place where you could spend all day. There are so many parts to this palace, and kids would be totally entranced by the grottos and climbing opportunities (the chance to be Rapunzel in a tall tower!). A lot cooler than Lisbon so take an extra layer and allow extra time to explore this place when you are in Sintra. We left it to the end so didn't have long.
