Moorish Castle

O Castelo dos Mouros permite admirar, ao longo dos caminhos de ronda, por entre penedos e sobre penhascos, uma paisagem única que se estende até ao oceano Atlântico. Sobranceiro à Serra de Sintra, e de configuração irregular, consiste numa fortificação construída em torno do século X após a conquista muçulmana da Península Ibérica, sendo ampliada depois da reconquista cristã.
