Wow! What a magical visit. Loved every moment in this beautiful place.
You do need good footwear and to be quite mobile to enjoy all aspects of the grounds.
Fortunately, it wasn’t a busy day or time when we went Monday afternoon. Short queues. We...More
Quinta da Regaleira is a must-see attraction for sure. It feels like you are exploring the set of a movie, it's so magical. You must make sure to visit the well and you can take some incredible photos from the top of the well looking...More
I visited Quinta da Regaleira as part of a day tour to Sintra. Didn't know too much about this palace except seeing many photos of the Masonic Initiation Well. Every corner is photogenic and perfect for Instagramer. Wish I can spend a moment at the...More
Quinta da Regaleir is another World Heritage site in SIntra, located in the old quarter. The luxurious gardens were a joy to walk through, and a bit of magic as you glance down into the groto. Parking can be limited, but don't let this keep...More
We visited Quinta da Regelaira this past week. We arrived as soon as they opened at 9:30 to avoid any crowds.
Upon arriving you have the option to get the audio guide. Highly recommended as the grounds are extensive and have many different exhibits to...More

July will definitely involve lines. We were there in September and tried to get to Pena early, but probably should have arrived even earlier -- like when the doors open. Buy tickets before going. We were going to buy our tickets at a souvenir shop in town near Palacio National, but they were still closed in the morning before we went. Take bus 434 to Pena -- the road is uphill, narrow at times, lots of traffic and the bus is most efficient to get you there quicker. When you arrive to Pena, go inside the palace first as everyone starts lining up to go in when the buses arrive and after that you'll spend way more time standing in line to go in. Pena seems to be the most tourist attracted palace in Sintra and gets extremely busy and crowded -- July will be even more so!
We spent an evening in Sintra so after arriving mid-morning, we went to Quinta da Regaleira and Montserrat Palace. There were no lines at either of these locations. The next morning we went to Pena first thing (lines for tickets and to get in!!!) and then walked back downhill to the Moorish Castle (no lines). We thoroughly enjoyed Quinta da Regaleira and the Moorish Castle. We also thoroughly enjoyed Sintra and wish we had spent at least another night there. If you have the time, I would highly recommend giving Sintra a couple of nights and then you can feel comfortable taking the time needed to see the beautiful sights there.
Is an initiation well and leads into an underground passage that ends up at a pond with stepping stones and bridge under a waterfall. The well is a one way only in the sense that you can only go down and not come up from it.

Walk up to the main square from the station - head to the tourist office which you can see from the square - go by that to the left and walk uphill - you will see the signs then - it’s about 15 mins from the square so half hour in total !
