  • Really great museum and grounds, absolutely beautiful. Do this if you can. The Initiation Well is the most interesting and wild. Our guide recommended we start at the top and work our way down.

  • A lovely day out! Spent a whole day wandering around the beautiful gardens, and still felt there was more to be seen! A highlight for me was the labarinth caves and the many hidden castles to explore!

  • Lovely estate in the hills outside Sintra. Fascinating that it is more recently constructed than I assumed or than it looks (late 1800s). There are small out-buildings scattered about, giving interest to the complex of paths and scenic points. The Initiation Well was amazing but hard to enjoy due to the crowds. And it's not even high season yet! There's a very nice outdoor cafe there with good food, too!
  • 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).
