Castelo dos Mouros Ticket
With this ticket to the Castelo dos Mouros, you'll discover this Arabian fortress in Sintra surrounded by walls.
The Castelo dos Mouros was part of the defense of Lisbon during the Islamic occupation of the peninsula. After the troops of Alfonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, claimed the territory for the Christians in the 12th century, the Muslims left the fortress and a medieval village was built on its grounds.
After the end of the war between Muslims and Christians in the 15th century, the village and castle were abandoned until the 19th century, when King Ferdinand II decided to restore them. The historical and cultural heritage in this area, including the Castelo dos Mouros, led UNESCO to declare Sintra a World Heritage Site in 1995.
Since the 1970s, archaeological excavations have taken place at the Castelo dos Mouros and its surroundings. These excavations have led to numerous discoveries about the fortress and all the events it has born witness over the centuries.
