Moorish Castle

Near the shabby chic hotel we are staying in a pathway leads steeply up the hillside to a well preserved Moorish Castle. On the route up we come to a board with this inscription:

Jose Maria Ferrera de Castro 1898 - 1974
Having written most of my work in Sintra , where I have so often dreamed and worked, I would like to stay here forever..... I would like to be buried by one of those poetic foot paths that lead to the Moorish Castle ..... To be close to men, my brothers and close to the moon and stars, my friends, with the green earth in front of me and the sea stretching into the distance. The sea and the earth that I have loved so much...
