This tour takes you to the heart of Obidos region and with a history linked to wine and sparkling wine production dating back to the XV Century, the Quinta dos Loridos estate is a unique place, where tranquillity and nature play a special role. It is from these vineyards that the grapes are picked for the production of top quality sparkling wines - those of the Loridos brand . Produced in the age old winery, a rod-press dating from the XVII Century can still be found here. The Classic Method ("Methode Champenoise") is used to produce the wine, the whole process of which is conducted manually. This is followed by a period of ageing in the cellar. The surroundings of the cellar perfectly complement its purpose: terraced gardens, a lake, a forest, vineyards, and the largest oriental gardens in Europe, the impressive Buddha Eden. Buddha Eden Garden: With circa 35 hectares, the garden was created and devised by the Comendador Jose Berardo, in response to the destruction of the Buddhas of Banyan, in which one of the greatest acts of cultural barbarity took place, erasing masterpieces of late-period Gandhara art. From Buddhas , pagodas, terracotta statues and the various carefully-placed sculptures which can be found among the gardens, it is estimated that some six thousand tons of marble and granite were used to create this monumental work of art. There are seven hundred hand-painted terracotta soldiers, each of them unique, copies of those which were buried, some of them 2,200 years ago. At the central lake, KOI (Japanese carp) fish can be seen, and sculpted dragons rise out of the water. The central staircase is the focal point of the garden, where the golden Buddhas offer you a calm welcome. This is the Quinta dos Loridos estate, a place which awakens the senses...

I was surprised how big this place is. When I first walked in I had a slight thought of Las Vegas (you have to have been to Las Vegas to understand) because things seemed so much on a large or exaggerated scale. Also this sense...More

Worth a visit. Not easy to find if relying on road signs. Very enjoyable, lots to see and admire. Had coffee which was fine, but did not eat here. If you get a chance to go,take it and go!

It looks like someone used an eye-dropper to plop a 35 acre dose of serenity into an already quiet and peaceful place. The approach to this gem is beautiful and impressive. We arrived early and got to take the place in almost completely to ourselves....More

Take the A8 from Lisbon and exit at the Bombarral turning. It's about 35-40 mins
