The gorgeous gardens of this place are breath taking. The lakes, waterfall, overgrown churches and lawns are a lovely and quite hike which surround a very interesting palace. The outside trumps the inside though in sheer beauty, yet the palace is itself a beautiful building.

Well, this was a surprise indeed. I had no idea that the architecture of the era was so influenced by Islam. The inside of this building is breathe taking and you need at least an hour just to go around the Palace itself. Worth the...More

Very beautiful road to it and then a wonderful garden near the castle- very nice place. Inside also. Not many tourists and nature is like you are in the Seychelles, where we just were. So, very interesting.

Walked here from Sintra in about 1 hour. Really impressed with the gardens and the palace itself is worth looking at too. Bus stop right outside means you can get back to Sintra in about 10 mins.

Hello All... I'm still working on my itinerary and juggling between locations to visit or omit, but I would like to know about how much time would be needed to visit Monserrate Palace and the immediate surrounding grounds? Also, how far from Pena Palace by car? Many Thanks in advance.
