245m climb and some steep shizzle.

Ok ok I know I was supposed to move on but I hadn’t seen the castle in Sintra! So with the bike unloaded I went for it and nailed it too!

It was funny seeing the tour bus faces looking at me in disbelief when they passed by although I impressed myself too. Damn! It was steep but I actually really enjoyed it!

(Tony S, you’ll love this place!)

That’s the bike at the top, next to the castle entrance. Some of the switchbacks (90 degree turns) in the road were most definitely steeper than that; great fun zipping past tour buses etc.

And what a reward the castle is. No need for words, the pictures speak enough…

Tomorrow morning I leave for Obidos and this time the tents the one…
