The second most famous castle in Lisbon deserves your time and visit for many reasons. Prepare yourself on the trip to Sintra, because the climb is hard and the panoramic view from the walls will take your breath away. The castle is a UNESCO world heritage site for its architecture and the surrounding landscape. The castle was built at the top of the Sintra hills, on extremely uneven terrain, by the Moors in the 8th or 9th century. It was conquered by King Afonso Henriques at the time the country was founded in 1147. Prepare yourself for the Romanesque chapel that has stood since the time of the Christian reconquest, and to walk the steep path that lets you discover the whole Lisbon region. Put a day aside for your own conquest of Lisbon and Portugal.
