... that way and work my way back, that way I won't risk arriving there late in the day and not having time to really enjoy/photograph.
Getting there is very simple: There's a commuter train right from downtown Lisbon. It's not long and I arrive and eagerly set out to find this famous castle. To get there, you have to take a winding road that plunges into the forest... Through the trees down in the valley you can catch a glimpse of the famed castle.
