We got to the Moorish Castle in the afternoon after visiting Pena Castle first. A 30 Min hike from the Lakes. Not much of a queue buying tickets but still great to just go straight in. Hiked the entire castle wall and it was like a mini Great Wall of China. Spectacular views.

Here was really no line at theCastle of the Moors but it was. Ice to have the tickets just in case. The ruins involve a very scenic view but with much climbing. There is also limited refreshments at the site with a very small booth and vending machines so would suggest bringing water on a hot day.
