    This estate was built between 1904 and 1910. It was designed by an Italian architect; Luigi Manini for a wealthy Brazilian merchant; Antònio Augusto Carvalho Monteiro. Here you can visit a palace, built in neo-Manueline style, a chapel and a very beautiful garden with fountains, grottoes, turrets and a lake.

    Quinta da Regaleira is located about one km from Sintra Vila.

    Amazing and luxurious gardens can be seen if you just take a look at people's gardens. You can notice some ducks on the picture. Vegetation in very rich in the area. This garden is located in front of Quinta da Regaleira.
