  • We had a nice time visiting the gardens on a misty day. It's like wondering in a pristine forest and ending in a fairy tale. Highly recommend.

  • This place has huge gardens with mazes, fountains and grottoes, you can walk around and enjoy the fantastic views. I recommend visiting this after Palacio de la pena.

  • This place is absolutely stunning- like out of a fairytale. I’ve been several times and every time I see something new and still get the same feeling of amazement. It maybe easiest to get tickets in advance because the line is long. Also, I want to point out how lovely the woman that runs the gift shop is. She was such a pleasant and positive person to speak with, and all the gifts are beautiful.
  • Our favourite place in Sintra (we also went to the Moorish Castle and Pena palace). Easy to get to and can spend hours there, such a beautiful space to explore, with a spooky (in a fun way) history. Felt a bit magical / fairytale-like with all the winding towers and hidden wells and caves. There is also a cafe and toilets (these weren't the nicest but did the job).
