The Palace of Monserrate

The Palace of Monserrate is a magnificent piece of history nestled in the beautiful hills and forests of Sintra, Lisbon. Dating back to 1858, this majestic palace was built by an English millionaire and former diplomat of the British court – Sir Francis Cook. It has been inspiring visitors with its distinct architecture ever since.

Located within the Serra de Sintra Natural Park, this enchanting landmark offers spectacular views across Portugal’s picturesque landscape. Its unique Moorish-inspired features, including latticed arches and colorful orange trees make it one of Europe’s most remarkable sights. Inside the palace lies an array of stunningly beautiful gardens with exotic plants from around the world and a freshwater lake where visitors can take in views even more breathtaking than outside.
