The Palace and Park of Monserrate are part of the Parks of Sintra Monte da Lua and the entrance costs 8 € (if we visit more than one monument is cheaper).
The palace is located four kilometers from the historical center of Sintra, a little off the traditional tourist route, much more calmer than the others. Monserrate is a unique testimony of nineteenth-century ecclesiastical, where the exotic and vegetable motifs of the interior decoration harmoniously continue on the outside. The front lawn, the first in Portugal, begins the discovery of one of the richest Portuguese botanical gardens and one of the most beautiful landscape creations of Romanticism in Portugal.
