We arrived just before the lunch break when the quinta is closed from 12:30 - 14:00, so we only visited the garden. It was a very pleasant break but not worth the effort to get there as we had already visited the Monte gardens. However...More

As mentioned in other reviews, the climb up to this museum is exceedingly steep. Is it worth it? The interior is very cool well matched by the coldness of the reception. Be warned it is closed between 12 and 2, and although signs suggest the...More

I liked the collection of the museum but the accompanying information is very scarce. What they could do to really improve the experience is to have the employees to do the guided tours. Now they were just chatting with each other, oblivious to the visitors....More
