“Wonderful Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Very nice walk with many paths to explore and the gardens are something worth seeing to be sure. The palace is quite something on its own but the grounds and gardens make the visit well worth the trip.

“Beautiful gardens ,beautiful palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

In Sintra there are lots of beautiful gardens and palaces, it's like a fairy tale city. One of them is surely Monserrate..It was built by a british milionaire as his residence. It has beautiful english type gardens ,with lakes and secular trees .A real joy to walk around.
There is also a small palace ,moorish style with beautiful red roofs.
One can organize some events there.
Don't miss it and bebsure to bring a camera.

“Outstanding Palace and Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

A palace within a lush garden. A Gothic-style chapel in ruins, a small romantic cataract lakes and centuries-old trees. Excellent for walks in hot summers along trails that go through the woods as by landscaped. The little palace dominates a hill, from where provides a great panorama. With an excellent Indian architectural style have been restored one year ago. One hour visit including foot walk and a palace glance. Superb for taking pictures.

“Pleasant walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a good place to visit as it offers a pleasant walk through beautiful gardens with a good variety of plants. The palace is also nice, although it is being subjected to improvements, so there are parts being painted and refurbished. But soon it should be ready and even better than before for you to visit ;)

“Another fabulous garden in Sintra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

They sure know how to create another world in their Quintas and Parques, the Portuguese! With beautiful buildings and a marvellous teahouse it's a nice outing for the afternoon.
