The Moorish Castle: gazing upon Sintra

The Moorish Castle is one of the most stunning constructions of Sintra. It was founded in the 10th century AD, at a time when Muslims occupied the Iberian Peninsula. Sitting on one of the highest peaks of the village, the famous walls, the rocks, and the greenery make for the most beautiful view of the mountain and the Atlantic sea.
