there once was a tower flabbergasted
it was in the middle of a lake
“I am confounded
and utterly dumbfounded
but I’ll get out, no matter what it’ll take”

The land that is now Quinta da Regaleira had many owners over the years. It belonged to the Viscountess of Regaleira, a family of wealthy merchants from Porto, when it was sold in 1892 to Carvalho Monteiro for 25,000 réis. Monteiro built a bewildering place where he could collect symbols that reflected his interests and ideologies. With the assistance of the Italian architect Luigi Manini, he recreated the 4-hectare estate. In addition to other new features, he added enigmatic buildings that allegedly held symbols related to alchemy, Masonry, the Knights Templar, and the Rosicrucians. The architecture Manini designed evoked Roman, Gothic, Renaissance, and Manueline styles. This image here is called the wishing well. #sintra #portugal #quintadaregaleira #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelnurselife #exploretheglobe
