The Castle of the Moors is a hilltop medieval castle located in the municipality of Sintra that is great to see on a tour in Sintra.   The Moorish Castle overlooks the historic town of Sintra.   The climate is characterized by low temperatures and elevated precipitation, due to its proximity to the sea and dense vegetation.  

A private guide in Sintra is experienced in leading tourists around the landmark.   Outer walls open from a main access door where several paths wind around the hilltop of the castle. A second ring of walls reinforces the castle and at this second wall is the main entranceway to the castle. Nearby are the central remains of the ancient buildings.   The interior walls are punctuated by five rectangular tower, one circular tower, and pyramidal constructions.

Around these structures are fragments of older creations.  In the southwest corner is the uppermost tower that is referred to as the royal tower.  These ruins were created out of limestone and masonry and the interior is reachable from the western or southern facades. The southern wall is emphasized by an arched doorway.  A guide in Sintra will assure that guests get the most out of their excursions in Sintra.
