Maybe it's just me because I love architecture so much, but my goodness what a beautiful structure with an exquisite interior! I felt like i was in a movie set or something, this place did not seem real because it was so beautiful, and the...More
I like Moorish architecture, so the palace was quite interesting. There were extensive repairs going on, however, so it took away from the beauty of the house. The ceilings are the highlight. I took some time to really explore the grounds and made some fantastic...More
The lace corridors, the spiral staircase, the wonderful collection that once was here, all these make Monserrate a wonderful place. We went there is the evening, when they were just about to start a wedding, so the kitchen was really used and you felt the...More
We went there in the afternoon from the Quinta da Regaleria by Mytaxi. Cost about 5 euros. Totally worth it as the up and down hill walk would have been exhausting.
There was no line and no crowds at all. The signages are very clear,...More
On a clear, fog-free day, you can see Monserrate Palace high among the hills of Sintra. Make sure you pay a visit, entry is a modest €8 for adults. The palace itself isn't very big at all, and it is sparsely decorated as it undergoes...More
Although the house is devoid of furniture - sold off many years ago - it is a fascinating piece of architecture both inside and out. It is possible to see past the opulence and appreciate that the house was also a very comfortable home. The...More

The celings, the library wood door is very beautiful.

A later afternoon visit - using the 435 bus both ways - which goes on quite a circular route - so you see a bit of Sintra as well. Left the station at 4pm - no queues anywhere and for the rest of the trip!...More
I walked here from Sintra, was not particularly going there but came across it almost by accident and decided to visit. Fascinating gardens and beautiful small palace. Worth spending a few hours. Not crowded at all.
We love this place. It's got a slightly fairy tale feel to it...a feel that it was abandoned and you are discovering it. (Although not as much as it felt like that when we first visited about 25 yrs ago!)...at that time you could walk...More

Hi thank you for your question. We used the Bus 417 to Cascais via Estorill - Approx 30mins. There is another bus (not sure of number catch outside of train station) that takes you to Cascais via Cabot De Rocha, this is amazing, fantastic scenery. Total journey about an hour. Cabot De Rocha is well worth a visit so maybe a day pass would be better. Also sunset at Cabot is awesome. You can get Tuc Tuc these are fun but work out quite expensive. See your options for travel passes etc - although the transport network is very reasonable.
