Portugal’s Hideaways: Quinta da Regaleira

Come and discover Quinta da Regaleira located in the Serra de Sintra

Quinta da Regaleira is one of the most amazing monuments in the Serra de Sintra. Located at the end of the historic center of Vila de Sintra, it was built between 1904 and 1910, in the last period of the monarchy. The romantic domains formerly belonging to Viscondessa da Regaleira, were acquired and expanded by Dr. António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro (1848-1920) to found his place of choice.

Holder of a prodigious fortune, which earned him the nickname Monteiro dos Milhões, he associated to his unique architecture and landscape project the creative genius of the Italian architect and scenographer Luigi Manini (1848-1936) as well as the mastery of sculptors, gardeners, and carvers who had worked with him at the Palace Hotel in Buçaco.
