"More Climbing!" Top 5 Page for this destination Castelo dos Mouros - Moorish Castle Tip by Bwana_Brown

  Inside the Walls, Still Heading Uphill
by Bwana_Brown

The way the castle walls wind along the mountain side integrated into the granite boulders and peaks is amazing (see the Intro page photo for another view). We had a great time exploring the many pathways and views from different turrets as we made our way upward to the highest part of the castle. This is a view inside the walls as we continued on that upward journey.
