Enjoy its fine decoration and stroll through the gardens of the World Heritage, you will see special plant species from all over the world.
The palace is a typical Portuguese building, a world heritage site, and the most interesting thing to see is the interior, both in the hall and the bedroom, which is extravagant and superior.
This is another physically demanding activity that requires walking up and down steep roads and gardens. This palace is very interesting, with Moorish and Indian architecture, although there is not much to see in the house. The garden is beautiful, but there are not many flowering plants, and there are no roses in the rose garden.
This is the garden of Monserrate Palace, with its large lawns and a variety of flowery plants, which are beautifully contrasted with the cream-yellow palace. There is also an abandoned palace in the jungle, which is mysteriously covered with plants, and worth the adventure.
Because the car is driving faster, I haven't had time to look carefully .... But near here, some specialty shops are quite good, you can see! Porcelain, handmade, have a coffee! You can also chat with some local aunts, Portuguese generally better than Spanish
This was a private estate, the entrance is very low key, a small door. After entering, go to another world! Big and big garden, various plants, streams, sculptures, flower beds, very beautiful. The main building is a pink villa, which is large and has a complex and elaborate carved design that is said to be Indian. It also opens the kitchen and you can see/imagin the movie of how the manor servants served the aristocratic dinner.
The Sintra area is a must see on your trip to Lisbon. Make your way to the Monserrat Palace without the queues to explore this 16th century church, which was also a private home.
There is also a restaurant attached to the estate. I went to the restaurant just in time for dinner. I went in for a simple meal. I ordered mashed salmon and pumpkin soup. It tasted simple and delicious. Feel the atmosphere of the estate restaurant.
