It’s like walking to a Disney movie with magical forest and real castles. Spectacular details everywhere and lots and lots of space to walk around. The labyrinth grotta was especially spooky.

Such a beautiful place, layer upon layer of secret paths, gardens, rare species of trees and shrubs. It is challenging to walk the entire property but very worthwhile. Recommended

I only spent a few hours here and it wasn't enough. I meant to return but never had the time. I would recommend at least 4 hours.

Right at the entrance is a little faded information board with wifi info and an AR app. GET THE APP! We had a blast. Go discover it for yourself

We have visited this place many times and still feel like going there when we are in Sintra. Sintra is known as the Garden of Portugal and this place must be the garden of Sintra.

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.
