This tour takes you to the heart of Obidos region and with a history linked to wine and sparkling wine production dating back to the XV Century, the Quinta dos Loridos estate is a unique place, where tranquillity and nature play a special role.

It is from these vineyards that the grapes are picked for the production of top quality sparkling wines - those of the Loridos brand . Produced in the age old winery, a rod-press dating from the XVII Century can still be found here. The Classic Method ("Methode Champenoise") is used to produce the wine, the whole process of which is conducted manually. This is followed by a period of ageing in the cellar.

The surroundings of the cellar perfectly complement its purpose: terraced gardens, a lake, a forest, vineyards, and the largest oriental gardens in Europe, the impressive Buddha Eden.

Buddha Eden Garden:

With circa 35 hectares, the garden was created and devised by the Comendador Jose Berardo, in response to the destruction of the Buddhas of Banyan, in which one of the greatest acts of cultural barbarity took place, erasing masterpieces of late-period Gandhara art.

From Buddhas , pagodas, terracotta statues and the various carefully-placed sculptures which can be found among the gardens, it is estimated that some six thousand tons of marble and granite were used to create this monumental work of art.

There are seven hundred hand-painted terracotta soldiers, each of them unique, copies of those which were buried, some of them 2,200 years ago. At the central lake, KOI (Japanese carp) fish can be seen, and sculpted dragons rise out of the water. The central staircase is the focal point of the garden, where the golden Buddhas offer you a calm welcome.

This is the Quinta dos Loridos estate, a place which awakens the senses...

It worth every minute. take your time. Still, is like a big museum require several visits. Prepare yourself to walk. 3 to 5 hours visit. Unless one take the train that is an hop-on-hop-off good option ( €3 for the train + €4 the entrance ticket. Still very cheap ). Fantastic Zen place. Never to crowded and one always found... More

I had never heard of this park before but we were in the neighbourhood and got some tips to check it out. We arrived here but the park was already closing up. The gate was open so we went in either way to check it out. It's huge! There are hundreds of buddha statues and since it was closing there... More

I will start by the pros of the space. ITS WONDERFUL the scenario is great and it really inspires you into a Zen state of mind , filled with different things and always something wonderful new to discover each way you look. But the way people behave really spoils the place. You got signs everywhere "please do not touch the... More

No body has any respect for anyone else here. No direction on where to go or where you should wait. No body tries to help they just yell. Do not come. Not worth the money. Huge waste of a drive and money.

Visited this attraction for the second time last week. We first visited two years ago and the park has improved a lot since then as was evident by the increase in number of visitors. Price is great, at only €4 a ticket, it is great value. There are plenty of sculptures to view in beautiful surroundings. The train is an... More

I visited this with my parents ( both in their 80's), we had a lovely time, but it is only for people who enjoy sculpture. We particularly liked the African garden because we have seen similar sculpture in the U.K. It was rather bizarre that the Terracotta Army is painted blue, maybe a reference to the blue tiles and ceramics...
