  • This place is amazing and a must see. We took a guided tour a great guide who had been there for 20 years. The story behind this beautiful estate and all the symbols that were built into it are both c...  more »
  • My advice is to get here early to avoid the tour groups and pay to have a guide. Stephano was a very knowledgeable guide who was able to provide an insight into the owner of the mansion... There is pl...  more »
  • Beautiful. Eye to the Park had much luck just opposite, a man of the people told us that we were lucky and he was right. Then visit him with calm, has many tunnels and nooks and crannies that are worth without a doubt see. It is a marvel. 6 euros per person. Do not doubt it, especially the caves that make you miss.

  • This is probably the most interesting palace I have ever been to! So many little places to see, so much beauty! Once inside, you feel like a child in a fantasy world. I can only imagine how great it must be for children to be there. Be ready for a lot of staircases and walking. For those who have knee or general leg problems, it may hard. I injured my ankle a couple of weeks ago and I could definitely feel it while walking there, but it was well worth it. Highly recommend a visit to Quinta da Regaleira to everyone!
  • Simply amazing. One of the most incredible park I've seen in my life. It is so special that it is impossible to properly describe the place, the atmosphere or the view. It should be highlighted as as a must see for everybody going to Portugal. The palace is nice as well but not even comparable to the magnificence of the park surrounding the building. Getting lost on the surface and below is a magical experience.
  • Amazing place to spend a couple of hours. The palace/house is nothing special inside but the outside and the extensive gardens and grounds are brilliant. Tunnels and caves and water features and monuments. Very cool.
  • An interesting park with statues, walkways, and beautiful, curated plants. Among the man made structures are two wells with spiral staircases that you can enter and a well preserved hunting lodge. There are even some caves to explore. This is well worth the few euros entrance fee. This whole park includes a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. And parking can be difficult to find. Get there early! There are taxis and tuck-tucks that will take you to the other Sintra attractions.
  • ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! "Quinta da Regaleira" is simply a MUST if you are nearby Sintra or in Lisbon, the entrance ticket is cheap (6€), and the place is just HUGE, the nature is breathtaking and buildings and statues are incredibly beautiful and detailed... There are also a lot of caves, underground tunnels and even a cafe, you can easily spend the whole afternoon here and get some incredible pictures! I couldn't recommend it more, is worth every cent!
