Conquered in 1147 by Afonso Henriques for the Christians, the Castle was a major victory in the reconquest of Portugal. Today the Castle is in ruins, although it was restored in mid- nineteenth century, and offers spectacular views to its visitors from Ponte 25 de Abril to Arrabida, Cascais to Cabo da Rocha, Peniche and the Berlenga islands.
It is one of the most surising and enigmatic monuments of the Sintra Cultural Landscape. Quinta da Regaleira is classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
Once the royal town of the country, it now deservedly holds UNESCO world heritage status and attracts hordes of visitors throughout the year. Sintra has unusual geography: hills, forests, ocean, and its subsequent climate. Monuments and nature get together in one of the most perfect combinations.
