    Castelo dos Mouros, stone and green

    Favorite thing: The "jungle" that has grown up around and even INSIDE Castelo dos Mouros, can at times be amazing, take these photos for instance. We are standing below, beside, on or even inside walls of stone, several meters high and looking out you can barely notice them for all the greenery.

    Favorite thing: Wether looking UP at the towering walls, or climbing to the top and looking down, it is always impressive the sheer MASS of these constructions. The last photo in this group was taken from the Royal Tower, the highest point within the castle...If you have fear of heights or health problems, give this one a pass, it is quite a climb.

    Castelo dos Mouros Keeps and Towers

    Favorite thing: Beautiful rough hewn castle and its towers, keeps and walls, watching over the city of Sintra far below. This is the type of castle that kids dream of defending when playing crusaders and such.
