Castelo dos Mouros

Sintra, Portugal

Here is the sight that greeted us when we came out of the beautifully colored tunnel.
The Moorish Castle was built between the 8th and 9th century.
It is a testament to the Islamic presence in the region.
The castle overlooks the village of Sintra.
We walked over and explored the castle after we were done visiting the Pena Palace.
