A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Jan 22, 2013
I took the guided tour of the Quinta and I have no words to describe the experience!

Our tour guide was Jose Oliveira a really funny and extremely knowledgeable guy, who spoke perfect English and seemed to know every little detail of the place.

Our experience wouldn't have been the same without him and his encyclopedia like knowledge, so don't hesitate in taking the tour with him! It's worth every penny and you won't understand the depth of the place without a guide.

The gardens are amazing, so detailed and every little corner has a lot of meaning, a very deep spiritual meaning behind every stone, stairs, lake, cave, waterfall, etc...

It's breathtaking and one of the most spectacular places I ever came across in the whole world.

A true dream garden May 14, 2012
I went on a few tours during my vacation in Portugal and I enjoyed the Quinta da Regaleira garden the most. The water elements, structures, trees and flowers made this place truly a magical and peaceful place. The garden was full of masonic number sequencing (for lack of a better description) and a strong platonic influence. Everything had a purpose or meaning. The tour guide was awesome!! He guided with tons of knowledge and passion and explained the many philosophical aspects of the garden. Every structure, stone, flower and cave was fully thought out and had a purpose. Every path and cave had more than one optional path. The garden was purposely planned like that to make you think about life choices. Absolutely Fantastic!!!

A Must in Sintra!! Oct 03, 2011
Sintra is amazing!!!!!! One of my favourite places in Europe. Quinta de Regaleira is so interesting, you feel that you are literally teleported into someone's life you wish you had. Put aside quite a bit of time for this property because their is so much to see! The best advice I can give is bring a flash light!! Their are so many beautiful caves to see that If you are without light it will not be the same. I had to improvise and use my camera flash but luckily for me it worked out. When going to Quinta do not take a bus from town because it is about a ten minute walk and you get to see a beautiful waterfall!

*** Use a map because the property is massive

*** Bring Flashlight

*** Walk to Quinta de Regaleira

*** Don't miss out on seeing the temple and Spiral Staircase

It's Hard to Believe this Place Really Exists May 19, 2011
No, really. You'll never see anthing like this elsewhere. It's a fantasy land comes to life. A labyrinthe of disorienting, gob-smacking enchantment. It must be one of the most underrated, unpublicized attractions in Europe.

AMAZING! Jan 24, 2009
Sintra itself is a can't miss type of a city, and the Quinta de Regaleira is icing on the cake. Coming up the road and around the corner, I was stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the amazing mansion. Once I entered the grounds it got even better! One can spend hours on end wandering and literally getting lost in the gardens and it's underground tunnels. It's full of wells, lakes, waterfalls, statues, spiraling stair cases and towers, an aquarium, fountains, grottos, breathtaking views -- everywhere you turn there's a different path to take and every one of 'em you'll want to venture down! To be honest I felt like I was in a completely different world while I was there, and hours flew by without me even realizing it! It's a place i'll never forget, and hope some day to return to.
