The Castle of the Moors is a hilltop medieval castle located in the central Portuguese civil parish of Santa Maria e São Miguel, in the municipality of Sintra, about 25km northwest of Lisbon. Built by the Moors in the 8th and 9th centuries, it was an important strategic point during the Reconquista, and was taken by Christian forces after the fall of Lisbon in 1147. It is classified as a National Monument, part of the Sintra Cultural Landscape, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wikipedia

Folhadal intermediate run

Castelo Dos Mouros, Lisbon

This is a medium level 18km run deep into the heart of Madeira’s Laurel forest. Our route begins in Encumeada and after a long tunnel that leads to the Northside of the island, we'll start to penetrate in the dense Laurissilva Forest. Straightforward, we'll climb to Paredão, where we'll find a rail with more than 200 wooden steps: this requires some muscular endurance. At Paredão, we're at the heart of Laurissilva, surrounded by green hills and fantastic views over São Vicente. Continuing through a trail covered by heathers, we'll reach Lagoa do Caramujo. Arriving at the road of Ginjas, we climb to Pináculo and then go down to the Levada til Lombo do Mouro.
