Owner description: Not very far from the historic centre of Sintra is one of the most beautiful architectural and landscape Romantic creations in Portugal: the Park and Palace of Monserrate, unique representatives of 19th century eclecticism.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Sadly I made the mistake of hiring a car when travelling to Sintra. Please do not take a car anywhere nears this place you will never get parked (and we visited in the off season). Disappointed with not being able to park up to see the more famous places in Sintra we went a drive and randomly came across this place with a car park. We didn't know anything about it and though we would visit as couldn't visit the other places we had planned to.

This place is well worth going to see. Was less than 20 euros for two people to visit. We walked the whole garden before visiting the palace. The palace has been restored over the last few years and is stunning.

The site also has a small shops and café which was reasonably priced.

All in all this saved a wasted drive to the area. One comment I do have is the gardens aren't suited to people with mobility issues.

My husband and I were married here at it was a magical experience. The music room makes for a perfect venue and the grounds were ideal for photos. Also a wonderful place to visit and explore.

We hired a small electric car from LAS tours to visit here, the most westerly point As well as convent dos Capuchos, all in 4 hours
The palace is set in beautiful grounds, worth a walk around with waterfalls and unusual trees
It was the home of an English millionaire Sir Francis Cook and is definitely worth a visit

The gardens were absolutely superb with tons of exotic plants, especially palm trees and tree ferns - a delight to the eye. Probably the highlight of our holiday in the Lisbon area
