Sintra: Castle of the Moors
The castle itself was very grand and steeped in history. There were loads of high turrets and steep steps, the walk around it was a really good workout.
If you're a fan of visiting castles this one was great fun not only for the amazing views but for all the areas you climb and discover it felt like a maze of sorts at points.
The photo above shows an example of one of the areas you could climb to the top off. This turret was on its own as you entered the grounds and everyone was taking the opportunity to scramble to the top and get a photo. There was nothing to hold onto on the way up or down so if you are scared of heights this is not something you would enjoy.
The Castle of the Moors made an end to a great day out, with beautiful weather, good company and awesome views.
It was definitely a beautiful day out and I would not change it as our misadventures made for some funny stories to take home, however we were glad to get back to the hotel after such a long day.
While in Sintra there are many sights to see and I highly recommend this castle be one of them. It makes for a great day out whether you're there with family or friends or even on your own. There is so much to see and visit that it is well worth the trip.
