Visit to the Park and Palace of Monserrate
On a walk through the winding paths of Monserrate, with water ever present, exotic flora will take you on a journey around the globe in a setting dating back to the 19th century, a time when Monserrate was a source of inspiration for writers and artists. During the visit, we try to convey the concerns inherent in the preservation of the biodiversity and historical heritage of the Sintra Hills. At the end of the footpath, the Palace of Monserrate appears unexpectedly and the tour continues inside the monument, where its history, architecture and decorative elements are revealed.
