Photographer's Note

Castelo dos Mouros - Castle of the Moors
Recognized by Unesco as part of the World Heritage.

This is the castle built above city of Sintra by Maurs probably in 9th century. Later was took over by Christians in 1147. Since 15th century the importance decreased and finaly abandoned in 16th century. It is large complex definitely worth seeing. You can see the bridge "April 25th" in Lisbon from top of the castle.

You can climb up from Sintra, it is about 30mins walk sharply up the hill. Or you can wait among dozens of tourists for local bus.
