Description

Situated in the historic centre of Sintra is the Quinta da Regaleira or the Regaleira Estate, an extravagant gothic mansion and one of the top tourist attractions in Sintra. The estate consist of a palace and chapel, an enchanting garden that features fountains, lakes, grottoes, wells and a variety of other things. While visitors must visit the many rooms of the beautifully preserved palace; which are spread across five floors, they must make it a point to explore the garden which contains an elaborate tunnel system which connects many of the top sites within the estate. The mysterious garden is filled with secret gardens, secretive religious symbols and structures, which can be found all over the park. The Initiation Wells found here were made to look like wells, but in fact have stairs lining the walls and were never used as water sources. Guided tours are provided for those interested in learning more about the house and grounds.

Prayer Facilities

Muslims visiting the Quinta da Regaleira will not be able to find prayer facilities at the attraction, but they will be able to find a clean and quiet place in the garden to offer their prayers. Since there are no known mosques in Sintra, they could also visit one of the many mosques in the city of Lisbon, which is located about 45 minutes away.

Halal Food

The Quinta da Regaleira does house a café. While Muslim visitors will not find Halal certified food here, they are sure to find suitable vegetarian and seafood options on the menu. There are also no known Halal restaurants in the town of Sintra, so Muslims will have to dine at a local non-Halal restaurant.
