It’s one of Sintra’s ex-libris. The palace and garden that compose Quinta da Regaleira are surrounded with myths and exhale a truly unique romantic atmosphere. Even though the property belonged to other nobles before him, it was António Augusto de Carvalho Monteiro (1848-1920) who transformed it into what it is today together with architect Luigi Manini. Quinta da Regaleira’s 4 hectares include lakes, caves and other enigmatic constructions that evoke alchemy, the masonry, and the Templars. According to the late 19th century and early 20th century (before the fall of the Portuguese Monarchy, in 1910) trends, Carvalho Monteiro projected a palace with several architectonic styles: you’ll see Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Manuelino traits.
