Quinta da Regaleira is an estate located near the historic center of Sintra, Portugal.. It is classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO within the "Cultural Landscape of Sintra"..The land that is now Quinta da Regaleira had many owners over the years.. It belonged to the Viscountss of Regaleira, a family of wealthy merchants from Porto, when it was sold in 1892 to Carvalho Monteiro for 25,000 réis..With the assistance of the Italian architect Luigi Manini, he recreated the 4-hectare estate.. In addition to other new features, he added enigmatic buildings that allegedly held symbols related to alchemy, Masonry, the Knights Templar, and the Rosicrucians..In 1987, the estate was sold, once again, to the Japanese Aoki Corporation and ceased to serve as a residence..The Regaleira Chapel is a Roman Catholic Chapel, and stands in front of the palace's main façade.. Its architecture is akin to the palace's..The interior of the chapel is richly decorated with frescoes, stained glass windows and lavish stuccoes.. The frescoes contain representations of Teresa of Ávila and Saint Anthony, as well as other religious depictions.. Meanwhile, the floor itself offers depictions of the armillary sphere of the Portuguese discoveries and the Order of Christ Cross, surrounded by pentagrams..

The Initiation Wells (AKA initiatic wells or inverted towers) are two wells on the property that better resemble underground towers lined with stairs.. These wells never served as water sources.. Instead, they were used for ceremonial purposes that included Tarot initiation rites..The tunnels connect these wells to one another, in addition to various caves and other monuments located around the park..Bodies of water can be found in several places in the park..However, the Aquarium is no longer used and is poorly maintained...Of the two wells, the larger one contains a 27-meter spiral staircase with several small landings..

Looking down the Initiation well..

The 13th Spirit is called Beleth..He is a mighty King and terrible..That's Dr. Evil's cat!. He rideth on a pale horse with trumpets and other kinds of musical instruments playing before him.. He is very furious at his first appearance, that is, while the Exorcist layeth his courage; for to do this he must hold a Hazel Wand in his hand, striking it out towards the South and Eastender Quarters, make a triangle, △, without the Circle, and then command him into it by the Bonds and Charges of Spirits as hereafter followeth..He is of the Order of Powers, and he governeth 85 Legions of Spirits..I never forget a!..According to PseudomonArchia Daemonum Ham, Noah's son, was the first in invoking him after the flood, and wrote a book on Mathematics with his help..Beleth gives all the love of Men & Women he is commanded until the conjurer is Satisfred..There are cultures that have in past centuries, and in present, practiced rites of passage for a girl experiencing menArche... I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really..And What they say is, "You will dye in se7en days".. And exactly se7en days later..What about the person we show it to?. What happens to them?..Very well, Where do I begin?..Here we go, the world is spinning..When it stops, it's just beginning...
