The Moorish Castle

Parques De Sintra Castelo Dos Mouros Tumulo

The works commissioned by Ferdinand II damaged part of the Christian burial grounds of the church and resulted in the building of a tomb to house the bones found there. The tombstone was carved with a lunar crescent, a cross as well as the inscription: “What man brought together, only God may separate” given the inability to distinguish whether these were Christian or Moorish human remains.
