There is this wonderful castle about an hour outside of Lisbon up in the hills. It is very Moorish in design and we were able to go through it, although no pictures were allowed inside.
I was fascinated by the walls that look like they are covered in spikes.
When I think of a castle this is what I have in mind.
This is the first impression as you arrive. It was a Monastery first and added onto when it became the quarters of the Royal Family.
As you can see, there is a view all the way to the ocean from Pena Castle.
This is a view of the city hall in the town of Sintra.
