Definitely worth visiting! Take the 435 bus from the stop just in front of the Tourist Office in historic Sintra. The fare is 2 euros one way. You can pay the driver. The house is not furnished, but is mildly interesting even so, especially the 2-story library. What makes the visit great, though, is to book ahead for a tour in English (or whatever your native tongue is) of the gardens. Just walking through the gardens with the self-guided tour map is good, but the tour guide adds so much more to the visit with a wealth of background and information an inside knowledge. The gardens are beautiful, but the philosophy behind them makes for an exotic adventure. Allow at least two hours from the time you catch the bus in Sintra to the end of your visit.
