This is the first view you get of Castelo dos Mouros, but it is actually Igreja deSao Pedor de Canaferrim, located just outside the walls.
We caught a film crew making a documentary, but could not get exact details.
Entrance door and arch to Igreja deSao Pedor de Canaferrim.
Inside the castle were several conical structures which we learned were the air vents for the water cistern underneath.
Activity inside the walls also, we found this crew of archeologists hard at work, but we were not allowed inside. And before you say it, YES, I actually did call out to them and ask permission to come and see what they were doing.
On the path to the Castle Keep, Zohara waiting for me to stop photographing everything ^O^
Some of the castle walls incorporate natural stone outcroppings.
On our way back out the film crew were still there and they looked like they were getting frustrated after hours of filming. At that time there was a "discussion" going on between the actor and what we took to be the director.
