We arrived just before the lunch break when the quinta is closed from 12:30 - 14:00, so we only visited the garden. It was a very pleasant break but not worth the effort to get there as we had already visited the Monte gardens. However...More

I liked the collection of the museum but the accompanying information is very scarce. What they could do to really improve the experience is to have the employees to do the guided tours. Now they were just chatting with each other, oblivious to the visitors....More
