  Moorish Castle on its Mountaintop Perch
by Bwana_Brown

The walls of the old Moorish castle, dating from the 8th century, provide a majestic backdrop to the view from the Royal Palace. Since we had arrived by train, we took a scenic hike up to the walls via a footpath through the forest to the left of this zoom shot from the Palace. It eventually emerges at the ruins close to the left tower with its flag pole.

Directions: Windng over two of the ridges of the Serra de Sintra above Sintra.
