Walked here from Sintra in about 1 hour. Really impressed with the gardens and the palace itself is worth looking at too. Bus stop right outside means you can get back to Sintra in about 10 mins.

Beautiful and away from the tourist crowds. Well worth the trip! Great place to stroll around with children who will enjoy looking at the fish in the ponds. Absolutely stunning.

blown away! this was a surprise... for garden lovers, the most beautiful gardens I have seen since a long time. The place is beautiful, well maintained, and still not that popular. A must, the very best of my trip to Lisbon.

We did these Gardens and it's "palace" to beat the crowds at the usual tourist spots. These are world class Gardens w well marked paths. Be prepared for hard walking. They have their own hop on-hop off cart.

This is a stately home with huge gardens. The gardens take a good while to get around, and it's all well worth a visit.
