In the town of Sintra, the Quinta da Regaleira, an extremely beautiful architectural complex, includes an early twentieth century palace and a garden. Specialists consider that the estate reveals and symbolises Masonic rituals, although no-one knows whether the original owner of the estate, António Carvalho Monteiro, actually practised Masonic rituals on the site, or simply desired to perpetuate the imaginary universe of this secret cult.
The garden includes labyrinthine galleries and subterranean grottoes, which can be accessed from this dry well, 60 metres deep, 9 stairwells each with 15 steps.

Call it the Paris of the West, the City That Knows How, or even  (shudder) Frisco — San Francisco is the city on the bay that no visitor  ever forgets, whether it’s because of the sourdough bread, the  heart-on-its-shoulder political activism, or that big ol’ red bridge.  But the San Francisco you may know today wasn’t always the iconic city  of the liberal literati, mighty spans, and Gold Rush memorabilia. See more here
