Sintra was a hotspot for the summer of the Portuguese Family and as a consequence a getting point for nobles and aristocrats from Lisbon. As a result Sintra got a lot of summer houses, chalets, villas, palaces and castles that shaped up the cozy and fancy look of Sintra nowadays. One of those summer dream houses is Quinta da Regaleira, a botanic park with vegetation from all over the world combined with unique architecture influences and the most noble materials. It looks like an outdoor opera scenery with a very popular and famous highlight, the Iniciatic Well. Right next door, there is another incredible summerhouse called Biester Palace. This is another excellent example of the variety of diversity of vegetation from all over the world and a mix of architecture styles that can be seen at the palace. The belvederes and consequent views are also stunning. This Palace is famous for the movie “The Ninth Gate” with Johnny Depp.
