The wind and fog added to the authenticity of the experience. The short video of the history of the castle in the Old Church building is a must watch.

No lines to visit. Castle was not busy. Nice views but not for those scared of heights or with mobility issues. Steep climbs and steps with little or no guardrails. Kids may have difficulty too.

It is a beautiful castle with amazing views of Sintra and the nature landscape.
It would be nice to include some guiding tours or audioguides in the ticket, it would be very interesting to know the history of the castle while you visit its walls

Your time is valuable and if have an opportunity to purchase skip the line tickets it is worth it. We enjoyed walking directly into the Castle of the Moors without any wait time. It is a beautiful place with luscious plants and flowers. The breathtaking views from the walls of the castle are a must see.

I took my 7 year old son out for the day sightseeing. We absolutely love the time we spent walking around this beautiful site. The one thing I would like to mention is the wind up there. My son and I couldn't spend as much time up on top as we wanted because we were freezing. We will be back with my wife and other children for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
