Although the middle part of the steps collapsed very early, there is still a section of the city wall that is intact, about 300 meters long. Climb to the tallest tower of the castle to get a sweeping view of the surrounding scenery.
Along the way there were many young men and women with dampproof mats and sleeping bags, along with a pupil with a mountaineering stick, a little lorry in a wizard's long hood with a light foot, and a cloak fluttering with the wind, which made me see little Hermione in Aliport
The Mauros Castle is the only Moorish-style castle in Europe, built by the Moors in the 17th century. The castle built in the 7th century looks a bit like a mini Great Wall in the distance, across the bank from Pena Palace.
The first feeling in the process of climbing is to climb the Great Wall. The wall is winding, high and low, and undulating. The moss on the walls tells of the turbulent and tortuous history of the Iberian Peninsula. There is a flag placed high above each castle, which has its own special meaning.
The Moorish castle was built in the eighth century AD during the occupation of Portugal by the Moors in North Africa. The castle consists of several hundred meters of city wall and several bunkers. After Portugal expelled the Moors, the castle was renovated several times, combining Arabic and Portuguese styles.
Go to the Pena Palace first (you don't need to go in line if you go early), and then go to the Moorish Castle (the two main entrances are very close). There is an exhibition hall in front of the castle. Don't miss a documentary inside! After entering the castle, climb the lower tower on the right first, and then climb the highest tower counterclockwise along the city wall. View the Pena Palace and overlook the entire Sintra city! The garden in the center of the castle is full of flowers.
By train from Lisbon to Sintra, there is a bus from the station to the Moorish Castle and Pena Palace. Our first stop is the Moorish Castle. The ticket is 8 euros per person. Going up the hillside along the way, it is said to be a castle, more like a city wall. After climbing the city wall, you can see the beautiful scenery of Sintra, and you can see the Pena Palace not far away.
Please visit this castle. It has beautiful scenery and interesting historical facts. Travel by yourself. It is very beautiful whether you see it from a distance or from the castle. I think these vibrant colors tell the rich cultural heritage of Portugal.
