The Monserrate Palace is an exotic neo-gothic palatial villa located in Sintra, built in 1858 for Sir Francis Cook, a millionaire Englishman. It's a fine example of the Sintra Romanticism, along with other nearby palaces, such as the Pena Palace.
The most important and worth to see are the magnificent gardens, with tropical species and botanic rare trees.
The architecture is Mogul-style, built in the place of an old chapel, destroyed by the 1755 earthquake.
The inside of the building is interesting, but not stunning neither sumptuous.
There are some restauration works being done on the first floor
