We walked by on our way up the castle, but if you start at the top, not worth walking all the way down to visit. If you start at the duck ponds.....beware you have a hell of a climb up to the castle.

We walked past and and just marvelled at a interesting Duck House,
Not worth a special visit for this alone.

Hiking to the Palace of Pena, will take you through the palace grounds and past the Duck Houses and ponds. Make sure you take the entire day to enjoy Sintra.

Really nothing special. But a little funny. And decorative small homes for the ducks, geese and other birds.
If you pass it, okay - but do not change route for going there.

This was just a fun place to stop and enjoy the geese and the architecture of the Duck House. Not sure who designed it but these ducks are very lucky to have a pretty nice hangout.
