The Inverted Tower in 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.

The well is connected to laberĂ­ticas caves that lead to a spooky garden surrounded by a lake.
