The gardens of the park are amazing, the palace has a great architecture, and all the surrounds are 'magical'. One of my favorite spots in Sintra (see also the moors castle, Sintra palace and Pena palace)

We hike here year round, and not only get great exercise from the hilly trails, but also see a multitude of flora from ferns to mushrooms to flowers abounding in the forest. A lovely spot that we come to at least twice a month to enjoy.

These gardens are magnificent, although there are some climbs involved for oldies like us! The plants, birdsong and perfumes are magical, and we strongly recommend this attraction for any visitor to Sintra.

As others have said, the gardens here are amazing. I much enjoyed the gardens over the palace, which is being restored. You can get here by taking the 435 bus circuit, which you can board as you exit the train station; it's the same initial access point as the 434 bus and the circuit is mapped so you can see... More

Parque de Monserrate is not that popular is Quinta da Regaleira or Pena Palace but it is surely worth visiting. Palace itself is beautiful but park is what you must see. Unique landscapes, tropical trees you probably have never seen before, exotic scents you feel even in winter time... Better to come during low season when the park is almost... More

Not sure why the palace is listed separately, it is part of the park and included in the ticket. The palace is nice but not huge, but the highlight is the gardens. Beautifully designed, a pleasure to stroll through, with a winding path, mini lakes, a Mexican tropical section, a fern canyon, waterfalls, just lovely. An amazing feat.

Ahh, the benefits of travelling out of season. But for me the weather was just great. I drove there but you can get a tour bus from Sintra - they're regular and not expensive, and the roads are a bit....... interesting... Is it worth visiting? You betcha. Beautiful grounds and the palace is quirky and lovely. The views are spectacular.... More

We visited this house and gardens when we went to Sintra. The house is not huge, but interesting, it had a very long passage/hallway with marble pillars each side and a stone feature and figure in the middle. It was different and quite impressive looking from one end to the other. The rooms were unfurnished, but light and airy, and... More
