Initiation Well- Located on the palace grounds of Quinta da Regaleira estate in Sintra, Portugal this well was never used for water. The 27 meter deep well was designed for use in Tarot initiation rites.
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 described above connect these wells to one another, in addition to various caves and other monuments located around the park.
