I would hate to be one of the soldiers that had to lay siege to that summit. Talk about an uphill battle!

Beautiful castle in Portugal! I recall castles like that in Italy and in Austria and the steep long hike up to the castle. I was really out of shape for that type of hiking back then. Hopefully it would be easier for me since I walk every day now.

Thank you all for your comments !
This castle was out in the country, perched on top of the Sintra Mountains. It was constructed during the period of Arab occupation of the Iberian peninsula.
