The visit to the castle wall was amazing! We took an Uber to the castle from where we stayed in Sintra. We got there around 11am and it was still fairly quiet. The full trip around the castle wall takes less than an hour. Easy walk in & overall great experience. If you wish to do the Pena Palace it is within walking distance from the castle. There is a hiking route of about 350m(less than 10min walk) from the castle to the Pena Palace gate.

I liked it all. Walking up the castles and views. The chapel and courtyard at Pena. I was a bit disappointed with Pena Palace because it was more money and there's not a lot more to see than any of the other palaces.

Sintra is amazing! We had tickets booked for the Moorish Castle and Quinta da Regaleira. Received these through the mail. At both, check-in went without a hitch.

Beautiful sites. Information, and signs well done. The optional audio app was really great. Much better than others we have experienced. Good job and thank you for a really nice experience.

In the days of yore when large swathes of Portugal were occupied by the Moors, a fortress was built to serve the purpose of a watchtower and an observation post. Over time, its allegiance changed from the Moors to the Vikings to the Moors before finally perishing at the hands of Christian rule. As Sintra's strategic importance dwindled, the castle was eventually abandoned. However, the mid-19th century saw a restoration project influenced by the Romantic tastes of the era and undertaken by Ferdinand II. Go further in-depth into the castle's history with an informative audio guide in English.

The views from the walls of the castle are truly spectacular. To the south, you can see beyond the river Tejo to Arrabida, and to the west, Cabo da Roca, and to the north, Peniche. From up here, you can also admire the Pena Palace and the hills of Sintra, covered in green and dotted with beautiful homesteads and romantic chalets. Archeological excavations continue to this day, and so far it has led to the discovery of a Christian graveyard and many artifacts that are now on display in the castle. Today, the remarkable Morish Castle is a National Monument, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and open to visitors from all walks of life.
