Beautiful old buildings, castles and palaces, set in sub-tropical vegetation, this is what Lord Byron described as 'That Glorious Eden'. Just 3 miles from Quinta da Luz. Then Cascais and Estoril, international resorts with all the life and bustle of nights life, a Casino and splendid restuarants. Finally, Lisbon, with its contrasts of old and new, the heart of Portuguese life. Quinta da Luz provides detailed notes on places to visit in the region and a sat-nav to get you there.All within a 15 mile radius.
The Pena Palace, the Palacio da Vila, the old Moorish castle, The Quinta da Regaleira, the old walking streets, a Toy Museum, carriage rides, so much to see and do, all within a beautiful old setting. Unforgettable.
