This palace is beautiful. “Off the beaten path” means there are way less tourists and you get the palace and the grounds basically to yourself. Easy to get to by car and there was plenty of parking at 3:00 in the afternoon. You don’t need...More

Highly recommend this for a visit. It's so magnificent and mesmerising. It's set in the beautiful gardens in Sintra and has amazing views. The palace looks just stunning and has a very unusual design. We fell in love with this place.

Visited Sintra for a day trip from Lisbon recently. This was by far the best palace of the day. Inside is stunning and was not as busy as the other palaces. Easy to do in an hour if you need to. A little out of...More

The gardens are nice and the palace is nice but relatively small, especially when compared to Pena or Mafra.

The ornate interior of the Monserrat Palace was amazing during our visit. The kids (ages 7 and 9) were more interested in the gardens, but my wife and I enjoyed both the history and architecture in the Palace.
