Castelo dos Mouros, located 400m high, is a testimony of the Mourish presence in the region of Sintra. It was rebuilt in the 19th century by D. Fernando II, along with Pena Palace. After being permanently conquered by D. Afonso Henriques in 1147, the first Christian temple of the region was erected here, Chapel São Pedro, but it is now in ruins. In the surroundings lies the grave of the writer Ferreira de Castro, who died in 1974. From the top of the walls, the view over the village is magnificent.
