The Palace is the great monument that grows in the town centre and accentuates its character

Vítor Serrão, Art historian

Everything in Sintra is divine There is no corner that is not a poem

Eça de Queirós, Os Maias, 1888

Vergílio Ferreira,

I give and bestow upon you, Queen Isabel my wife, for all the days in your life, my towns of Sintra

Rei Dom Dinis, last quarter of the 13th century

Two domed chimneys, dominated the whole building

Hans Christian Andersen, A Visit to Portugal, 1866

Park and Palace of Monserrate

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. The Palace combines gothic and Indian influences as well as Moorish suggestions together with exotic and plant motifs which are harmoniously extended to the exterior. The gardens have received species from all corners of the world, which were planted according to their geographical origin. The front lawn of the Palace provides a well-deserved rest, while discovering one of the richest Portuguese botanical gardens.
