Moors Castle - Sintra

The Moors Castle (Castelo dos Mouros) in Sintra with the Pena Palace in the distance.

Built on the site of an 8th century Moorish castle, the walls you see now are in fact a romanticised reconstruction built by instruction of King Consort Fernando of Saxe Coburg-Gotha in the 19th century.
