Castle of the Moors Tours

Castle of the Moors
Perched 1,351 feet (412 meters) above sea level, the Castle of the Moors commands views of the Sintra hills all the way to the Atlantic. The impressive fortification was built between the eighth and ninth centuries by North African Moors to protect the town of Sintra. Scandinavian crusaders captured the fort in 1147 and was further damaged by an earthquake in 1755. During the nineteenth century, Ferdinand II oversaw some restoration of the castle.

Today, visitors can walk the ruined ramparts and battlements, where the views are phenomenal. The castle is part of the UNESCO-designated Sintra Cultural Landscape.
