Monserrate Palace and Gardens

Beautiful Palace and Gardens without the Crowds
While the tourist hordes in beautiful Sintra, Portugal, are flocking to Pena Palace, head instead to Monserrate.

The gardens here are massive and have been recently restored. We wandered here for hours without hardly seeing another person.

The palace itself, although not as large as Pena, is just as grand, if not more so. Every inch of the architecture is covered in delicate carving. The Moorish and Indian influences work together to create a cohesive and beautiful design.
