Walking around in Quinta da Regaleira, Sintra

Have you ever been to Sintra in Portugal? If you haven’t you don’t know what you are missing….For real.

The pictures that I’m sharing below were taken this weekend in Quinta da Regaleira.

Quinta da Regaleira is one of the many attraction in Sintra, along with Palácio da Pena, Seteais and Monserrate.

This is a beautiful place with a small palace, a nice chapel and enchanted gardens. The gardens have lakes, fountains, a huge well and grottos. There are several stories behind Quinta da Regaleira is praised also by the references to the Masons, the Knights Templar and Alchemy.
