Quinta da Regaleira-Sintra ~ Portugal An underground tunnel with a spiral staircase, supported by carved columns, down to the bottom of the well through nine landings. The nine hole round landings, separated by fifteen steps, evoke references to Dante's Divine Comedy, and may represent the nine circles of hell, paradise, or purgatory.

Palácio da Pena Pena Palace stands on top of a hill above the Portuguese town of Sintra. The palace was built on the remains of a Hiëremonietenklooster (my next task is to find out what this means!).
