"The ruins of the Moorish Castle" cr
Standing on top of Sintra’s highest hill is the 8th century Moorish Castle (Castelo dos Mouros), regarded as one of the major fortresses erected by the Moors in Portugal.
Of the four towers that still stand today, one can be reached by steps and offers breathtaking views of the surrounded area.

I wonder what tales those walls could tell us.In the 8th century it would almost be impossible to breach those walls I would think.Well captured image with good contrast and tones.Congrats!!Luquesio.
