About Monserrate Palace And Park, Sintra

Monuments in Sintra are often found to be built in the Portuguese Romanticist tradition which has a distinctly eclectic approach to design. The Monserrate Palace is no different in this regard. It was built in 1858 by an English architect in Gothic, Moorish and Mughal (Indian) designs.

The Park area houses a wide variety of botanical riches. Plant species from across continents were brought to the garden. Fans of Lord Byron’s poetry would know that the famed poet mentions the Monserrate ruins in ‘Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage’.

You don’t have to be a historian or an aficionado of architectural design to know that you are looking at an overwhelming work of wonder. The octagonal Main Hall of the palace is adorned with alabaster statues and elegantly covered with decorative symbols and themes.

The Indian Drawing Room is a reflection of the love and lavishness that has gone into decorating this Palace. The room is decked with furniture and fabric from India and other porcelain and crystal items from Venice and China.

The Monserrate Park is often used for photography exhibitions, family activities and special events.

Certain sections of the Palace are beautifully illuminated, adding a well-deserved shine to the Palace’s glory.

Monserrate Palace And Park, Sintra Reviews

Google+
  • Loved this place!!! 1. Not a lot of tourists! 2. Very cool house that was restored to its original state from years of destruction. 3. House has a interesting story 4. Great gardens! I went in the winter time and didn’t get to see the rose garden in all its glory! But the grounds were still fascinating! 5. Parking! Only bad part, you have to pay to enter and it isn’t very cheap. But it makes it less likely to have a lot of people around.

  • Such breath taking beauty! Stunning gardens and a lovely piece of history! Well kept and contained. They have a small little cafe, so once done walking in beautiful gardens and viewing the ins and outs of this gorgeous palace you can sit down and relax.

  • Lovely place with lots to see, well worth the 8 euro entry fee. A little difficult with a buggy but still plenty doable, toilets could have been better.

  • Amazing! A lot of people skip this gem because it’s a few km out of Sintra, but it it’s totally worth it. The house has been restored and its architecture is a must see. The park/gardens surrounding it are delightful. They also have a cafeteria. Totally recommend it!

  • The palace is worth visiting alone but be sure to check out the Fern Garden and Mexican Garden too. Follow the signs left to experience more of this park.
