Pretty impressed grounds. We went in February so the gardens and trees weren’t in full bloom. Just be aware there is a lot of uphill walking.

So whimsical and beautiful. A must in Sintra. Wear sturdy shoes and leave yourself time to see all the sites within the grounds each is more delightful than the last.

Very nice place to visit, but be prepared to walk a lot. It’s really big and there are lots of things to see, I just think the price is a bit high.

It is quite impossible to describe Quinta da Regaleira in one review. The park is a dreamworld like I've never seen before with towers, fountains, beautifull plants, mesmerizing pits, tunnels connecting multiple locations of the park underground, and a beautifull mansion to top it off....More

Is an initiation well and leads into an underground passage that ends up at a pond with stepping stones and bridge under a waterfall. The well is a one way only in the sense that you can only go down and not come up from it.
