  3. These pictures are just stunning. They really make you want to go and immerse yourself in such beauty, history and breath-taking views. I cannot help thinking about how delighted your Dad would be to see them and would love to have visited such a magnificent place. XO

    1. Thanks so much, Jeanne. I couldn’t agree more. Dad would have loved it and I’ve learned even more about Regaleira since publishing this post. He would have loved the history of it all. Happy early birthday, by the way!!! 😘🎈🎂🎉

  4. Wow, I’m a little late to the party but this place is so incredible. And what a summer house! It reminds me of: “In Zanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decree, where Alf the sacred river ran, through caverns measureless to man, down to a sun-lit sea.”

  5. Wow! Fantastic! We were only in Lisbon for a four day stopover on the way to Gran Canaria, so didn’t feel we had time to go to Sintra. Now I see why everyone said we had to go there! I guess it’ll be on the itinerary when we get to Portugal again. You explored so much of what sounds like a huge property!

    1. I feel like I could go back again and again and still see something new. We still haven’t been to the Pena Palace or the Moors Castle. I know you are powering through all my blog posts (you get a GIANT GOLD STAR!!), but wait till you get to the post on Monserrate which is located just down the road from Regaleira. Another amazing place with extensive grounds. In short…you’ve got to add Sintra to your itinerary the next time you visit.
