"Castello dos Mouros" Portugal Things to Do Tip by Irato

Portugal Things to Do: 760 reviews and 1,215 photos


The picturesque fortress built by Moors and then captures by Christians in 1147. This large complex is an excellent destination for long walk. I found this place as one of the most beautiful and spectacular. I was impressed for the masterly skill of the ancient builders. They built kilometers of the walls and system of defense and didn?t destroy the beauty of the mountains ? the walls and rocks are the one here.
