The Palace Of Mystery: My Pictures Of “Quinta Da Regaleira”

I am a Canadian photographer Taylor Moore. I have captured the magic and mystery of the legendary ‘Quinta da Regaleira’ located in the UNESCO village of Sintra, Portugal.

‘Regaleira’ built by (the owner) Antonio Augusto Carvalho Monteiro in conjunction with the renowned Italian opera set designer and architect Luigi Manini. These two noblemen conspired to create a place of divine magic and mystery embodying a combination of styles including Roman, Gothic, Renaissance and Manueline.

I think that with underground caves, lakes, towers, and endless gardens the place is incredible to photograph day or night.
