Let me preface: we didn't love Sintra. The Quinta da Regaliera is the only site we actually enjoyed in Sintra. So, spend your time there instead of the other sites. This place reminded me of the Hellbrunn Castle in Salzburg. So, if you've seen that,...More
This has to be one of the most amazing and unusual places I have ever visited. There's so many things to see and do here, you could easily spend a day here. Lovely gardens, grottoes, wells, tunnels and hidden passages. Very unique experience, would come...More

We didn't take the guided tour and saw everything...NOT! The next day I was reviewing the map and discovered we missed plenty. Here's the deal. The house and gardens are really spread out. The Initiation Wells are remote from the house and a hike up the hill. The grotto and caves have multiple access points. The lovely guest entrance is on the far end of the garden. So study your map in its entirety or go wit the guide...but don't miss a single site!
