fireplace in Hunting Room, Quinta da Regaleira
The Hunting Room is the first room reached upon entering the main house at Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra, Portugal. It is decorated with numerous depictions of hunting, most notably on the carved mantel above the fireplace. The Quinta da Regaleira is the palace and surrounding four-hectare gardens built by Antonio Augusto Carvalho Monteiro, a Portuguese millionaire, between 1904-10. He employed the Italian architect Luigi Manini to create the neo-Manueline main house and to design the gardens which are filled with curious buildings, follies, grottoes, towers and tunnels. The design of the garden is said to represent an initiate's metaphysical journey through the cosmos towards enlightenment.
