Theatrical, Gothic and eerie, the Quinta da Regalaira estate is the brainchild of former owner Antoio Augusto Carvalho Monteiro. Designed to be a “bewildering” place where Monteiro could house collected symbols reflecting his interests, the palace hides alchemic, Masonic and Illuminati symbols within its façade. Today, the Portuguese Government operates the estate as a public interest property and has opened much of the manse up for viewing. The sweeping property is surrounded by four hectares of dense forest that is an attraction within itself. The park contains an extensive and enigmatic system of tunnels as well as several “Initiation Wells,” which were used for occult rituals.
