The last monument in this route is Palace and Park of Monserrate. The palace was designed by architects Thomas James Knowles (father and son) and built in 1858.

What people are saying about Sintra District

Very nice to look at and not so crowded! The price including the guide corresponds to the price on site, where you would have to wait 10-15 minutes at noon (weekdays), so it's super easy to bypass the queue. The audio guide map is great for finding your way around the large area and not missing anything. Bring a flashlight and explore the hidden cave maze which is not lit, super fun (and a bit adrenaline friendly) and adventurous!

Pre-purchase your ticket and save time on arrival. Walk in and scan at the entrance. Don't miss seeing this historical site while in Sintra. Pena Palace is beautiful too, 8 minutes to walk from one to the other. The two sites are very different. Take your time walking through and enjoying the views.

Had a great time exploring the place. So many caves, tunnels and paths! The audio guide was very helpful. The map was a bit crap but it's the venue's own map; everyone was lost trying to follow it. But otherwise a great day out!

Very enjoyable. Some great views and generally the walls were in great shape. Highly recommend. It gave a good idea of what’ a fort/castle of that day was like.

Loved the tour, such an interesting place; highly recommend it
