Monserrate Palace (Palacio de Monserrate) Tours

Monserrate Palace is an ornate palace in Sintra, Portugal that was built with a combination of Gothic, Indian, and Moorish influences. Sir Francis Cook purchased the land in the mid 1800s and had the palace built based on places he had seen in the many countries he had visited as a trader. It has an exotic theme that was inspired by his travels as well as an emphasis on plants both inside and out. The gardens contain plant species from all around the world and is organized according to geographic origin. It is one of the most impressive botanical gardens in Portugal and in Europe.

Visitors can explore the interiors of the palace, which served as Sir Francis Cook's summer home for many years. The Gothic style is an example of the eclectic tastes of the time. It is the smallest of the three castles in Sintra, but it is the most decorative and considered the most beautiful by many, and it is well worth a visit.

Practical Info

Monserrate Palace is located at Largo Infante Dom Henrique. The monastery is often visited as a day trip from Lisbon and can be reached by taking the Sintra train line. Opening hours are 9:30am to 7pm daily. Admission is 8 euros.
