The Quinta da Regaliera

The Quinta da Regaliera is a sprawling estate that was the summer residence of the Carvalho Monteiro family in Sintra, Portugal. The estate was built from 1898 to 1912 and was decorated in the neo-manueline style featuring many architectural details. The estate is great fun to explore as it full of towers, tunnels, wells, fountains, and other things to discover.  For a much more detailed description of the estate and its history, see this article on Wikipedia.
