  • Without a doubt the highlight of my trip to Portugal. If you’re planning on visiting, make sure to arrive early in the morning because there is just so much to see. Absolutely stunning and I’m honestly surprised that I hadn’t heard of it before. Lots of amazing underground passageways and corridors that connect one point to another; definitely an ideal place to come with children. I visited at a very peak time, but the sheer size of the place ensured that it wasn’t crowded. It seems endless, and even though I spent hours here, it still didn’t feel like enough because each and every structure needs time to appreciate. Highly recommended!!!
  • Fantastic Quinta. Inside there are many attractive spots. The stroll around this fantasy park will take at least 2 hours, but it is worth it. One will see the castle itself, two fantastic wells, sculptures and exotic plants. We enjoyed the walk but were very tired. There's no parking near Quinta, park the car in the town and walk about 700 m.
