Moorish Castle
The walls of Castelo dos Mouros, built in the 8th century, follow the contours of the mountain, in seemingly impossible contortions.

The Muslim fortress lost its strategical importance when it was conquered by king Afonso Henriques, together with Lisbon, in 1147, but from its towers and sentry paths there's an unique panorama to be enjoyed.
