Although Monserrate Palace and park is a little further out of Sintra than some of the other attractions it is definitely not to be missed. The palace is beautiful and has an interesting and varied history that is explained well through a number of displays....More
I’m not sure why other Sintra attractions hold such sway with Aussie visitors yet I rarely hear fellow travellers talk about Monserrate Palace.
Here’s a tip: if ever you find yourself in Sintra, you simply MUST visit this attraction; both the palace and the gardens....More
We hit the bus queue in Sintra and decided to take a less travelled bus and furthest stop first and this was it. I had previously decided on the 3 main things I wanted to see there - 2 of which required a different bus...More
Monserrate palace is located on a circular bus route and so is easy to get to from Sintra train station or the old town - just jumped on bus 434 for a circular route for €5.
The palace and its grounds are BEAUTIFUL, and in...More
Monserrate Palace is an astonishing fantasy structure, designed by a super rich 19th century Englishman who thought he'd blend together all that's best from Italian Gothic, Spanish Moorish, and Indian architecture. So there's a dome copied from Florence Cathedral adorned with turrets from India above...More

Hi thank you for your question. We used the Bus 417 to Cascais via Estorill - Approx 30mins. There is another bus (not sure of number catch outside of train station) that takes you to Cascais via Cabot De Rocha, this is amazing, fantastic scenery. Total journey about an hour. Cabot De Rocha is well worth a visit so maybe a day pass would be better. Also sunset at Cabot is awesome. You can get Tuc Tuc these are fun but work out quite expensive. See your options for travel passes etc - although the transport network is very reasonable.
