Castelo dos Mouros - Moorish Castle

The Moorish Castle also known as Castelo dos Mouros (portuguese) is medieval castle in the Sintra Mountains near Lisbon. Sintra is a beautiful town with a lot of things to see so we decided to visit it twice during our stay in Lisbon.

To visit the ruins of the Moorish Castle we had a long and strenous walk from the parking lot to the top of hill, from there you can enjoy the great views over Sintra and the surrounding areas. During the coldest season of the year walking the castle walls was pretty tough, enough to catch a cold that kept me in bed for the next two days. Sintra is definitely a beautful town with so much history and so many places to visit that you will need several days to see them all.
