Templars and Rosecrucians in Sintra, 7 seater Mercedes Viano Ambiente


We will be visiting Sintra sites deeply related with the secret society designed Rosecrucians and try to unveil the significance behind the symbolism. The recommended estates to visit are:
Quinta da Regaleira is still unknown to most Sintra visitors. We will explore on foot the gardens, initiation well, secret passages, lakes and grottoes.
Pena Palace is also an interesting symbolic monument intimately linked to the Rosecrucians Secret Society where King Fernando II was one of his great masters.
The owner of Regaleira - Augusto Carvalho Monteiro - was also a rosecrusian.

A Recent Review of this tour

Carla was wonderful - she picked us up right on time and took us on a great 4-hour tour of Sintra. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. She even recommended a fantastic place for lunch in Lisbon (Pinocchio). We felt very lucky to have her as our guide!!!
