    Very nice set. i lingered over #3 the longest. Just some unanswered question about the hill and what the view is from the top.

    These bring back happy memories of our trip last October. We didn't know how far the castle was so we walked up a seemingly endless and winding road!

    Thanks. It seems you took the normal route, which goes anticlockwise from the village up to Moor's castle. Indeed it is steep and full of twists and turns; it is actually the famous "rampa da Pena" from the Portugal Rally. It is much easier to take the route that goes clockwise from the village, much less steep, and you then come down via the rampa da Pena.

    I see, that is actually Palacio da Pena, a little after Castelo dos Mouros.
