The Essential
The ruined castle was built by the Moors and has beautiful views over the Serra. You can see two high walls dating from the Neolithic period, to the north-east on a wild and craggy height, the Rocha da Pena (479m). The local plant and animal life is protected due to its abundance in this place, and here you can see royal owls, Bonelli eagles, round-tailed eagles, as well as foxes, genets and hedgehogs..
