Overview

This tour takes you to the heart of Obidos region and with a history linked to wine and sparkling wine production dating back to the XV Century, the Quinta dos Loridos estate is a unique place, where tranquillity and nature play a special role. It is from these vineyards that the grapes are picked for the production of top quality sparkling wines - those of the Loridos brand . Produced in the age old winery, a rod-press dating from the XVII Century can still be found here. The Classic Method ("Methode Champenoise") is used to produce the wine, the whole process of which is conducted manually. This is followed by a period of ageing in the cellar. The surroundings of the cellar perfectly complement its purpose: terraced gardens, a lake, a forest, vineyards, and the largest oriental gardens in Europe, the impressive Buddha Eden. Buddha Eden Garden: With circa 35 hectares, the garden was created and devised by the Comendador Jose Berardo, in response to the destruction of the Buddhas of Banyan, in which one of the greatest acts of cultural barbarity took place, erasing masterpieces of late-period Gandhara art. From Buddhas , pagodas, terracotta statues and the various carefully-placed sculptures which can be found among the gardens, it is estimated that some six thousand tons of marble and granite were used to create this monumental work of art. There are seven hundred hand-painted terracotta soldiers, each of them unique, copies of those which were buried, some of them 2,200 years ago. At the central lake, KOI (Japanese carp) fish can be seen, and sculpted dragons rise out of the water. The central staircase is the focal point of the garden, where the golden Buddhas offer you a calm welcome. This is the Quinta dos Loridos estate, a place which awakens the senses...

Budda Eden is a very peaceful, beautiful place. Good for adults and fun for kids. Beautiful to walk around or take the little train if needed.

Worth a visit. Not easy to find if relying on road signs. Very enjoyable, lots to see and admire. Had coffee which was fine, but did not eat here. If you get a chance to go,take it and go!

It looks like someone used an eye-dropper to plop a 35 acre dose of serenity into an already quiet and peaceful place. The approach to this gem is beautiful and impressive. We arrived early and got to take the place in almost completely to ourselves....More

We were not expecting much but boy were we wrong. This place is amazing. We spent a couple of hours there but could have spent longer.

It is an odd experience to find a theme park in the middle of nowhere where you can find blue Chinese Xi'an warriors, Buddhas of all sizes and shapes, Ghandarva deities, African sculptures, lakes and tropical palm trees. All this 120 km from Lisbon. An...More

What a beautiful place. Tucked away and not hugely advertised, visited with friends on a cloudy day. Wonderful sculptures and beautifully kept grounds. A must see

Take the A8 from Lisbon and exit at the Bombarral turning. It's about 35-40 mins
