This was my favourite place in Lisbon and Sintra. The gardens are to die for. William Beckford, one of the richest men in England, had to leave the country after an incident with a young boy - which was a capital offence at the time - and developed this wonderful estate with the most elegant house where he entertained friends such as Lord Byron.
It is not nearly as busy as the Pena Palace, and quite magical.
