Marvelous Monserrate

monserrate

The palace of Monserrate, although not as big and pompous as the Pena palace (both of them in Sintra) is also surrounded by a beautiful garden and, let’s face it: it has its own unique flair.

I’ve already given you a few sneak peeks of Monserrate but here I’m showing you one of the sides of the palace in what is, I believe, a beautiful late afternoon light. The palace, once severely damaged by time and bad weather, has been restored and is open to visitors. Be sure to check out the palace’s webpage to plan your time there!
