Photographer's Note

Hi TE friends

During my meetings with Malgorzata, we was in the Regaleira Palace and Estate

In the WS, I post 2 pictures about the meeting

I hope you like it !

The Regaleira Palace and Estate, also known as also known as the "Palace of Monteiro the Millionaire”, was built in the beginning of the 20th century, born from the imagination of its millionaire owner António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro and the Italian architect Luigi Manini.

From dream to reality was born Regaleira Estate, a combination of several artistic and architectonical styles, from Gothic to Manueline, with a Renaissance touch. The result was an unique creation, filled with magical nooks and details that disclose the union between national History and esoteric and mythic interest, inevitably associated to the mountain range of Sintra.

From the luxuriant gardens to the numerous buildings, such as the Milhões Palace, the Santíssima Trindade Chapel, or the turrets and the small palaces, the Regaleira Estate provides an entrance in an alternative dimension that one could never guess just by looking at its main gate…
Situated next to Sintra’s historical centre, the Regaleira Estate is open every day of the week. Guided visits (scheduled in advance) at 11am, 12.30pm 14.30pm and 16pm.
