Sintra - World Heritage Unesco - Quinta da Regaleira #Day 2 (Part 1)

30.12.15
Good morning! Until the end of the year, I decided to share some photos from a day spent in 'Palace and Quinta da Regaleira', just a couple of days before Christmas. It´s one of the most magical and enigmatic places I´ve ever been.

Located near the historic center of Sintra, it is one of the principal tourist attractions, along with others, such as Sintra National Palace (#Day 1), Pena, Monserrate and Seteais Palaces.

The property has a romantic palace and chapel, and a magical park with lakes, grottoes, wells, benches, fountains, and a lot of exquisite constructions. In 1997, it was acquired by the Sintra Town Hall. The estate had extensive restoration efforts and it finally opened to the public in June of 1998, hosting cultural events.

We took a lot of pictures, because the place is beautiful! So, I will make two posts of it. This first one, I want to share the palace, the chapel and the fountains.

I strongly recommend to visit 'Palácio and Quinta da Regaleira'. This is a 19th century palace, although it looks older, boasting impressive decorations laden with Masonic references. The gardens are worth a visit and from its balcony you can see 'Palácio da Pena', 'Castelo dos Mouros' and the sea in the background...
The activities Quinta da Regaleira has to offer are from simple visits just to walk around to cultural events (exhibitions, music and theatre, courses and educational and recreational activities).
During the summer, you can see regular night-time spectacles (a great opportunity to experience the imaginary world of Regaleira) in its gardens. These performances include concerts, drama, opera, cinema, ...
Quinta da Regaleira has magical gardens, mysterious subterranean passageways, the palace, chapel and towers that make up the various scenarios and enigmatic symbolism contained within their exuberant surroundings.

I was wearing black flare jeans, boots and a black coat from Zara. I dress it down with a white and blue top from SS2016 collection (denim & supply RL). I hope you like it!
