I feel like the castle is a must do while in Lisbon. It costs 8.50 Euros to get in and you can roam around for as long as you'd like. I didn't do a guided tour so didn't get all of the history but it was nice to just walk around and see all of the views of the beautiful... More

Worth the walk uphill with fantastic views as reward. Nice little neighbourhood around the castle. We took a tuktuk back down the hill to the Cathedral.That was akin to a rollercoaster ride!

This is quite a place to reach - it's a long walk up hill. We took a tuk tuk. The garden part is lovely which a gorgeous scenic look over the city. I could have done without the climb up the stairs to the top.( have a fear of heights so was not quite pleasant for me) The top was... More

One of the first attraction that I visited when I arrived in Lisbon, Incredible!!! An amazing view over Lisbon and I was lucky enough to watch a classical music concert by the sunset on that day. Unforgettable! Get your legs ready because you're going to walk and climb thousands of steps, however it's certainly worth. Don't miss it!

Castle is on a lovely spot to view the whole town and take panoramic photos. It has a small park inside where you can relax and kick back. You can climb a couple of towers if you wish. You would not regret taking the time to go and visit the castle. After leaving the castle you can stroll around Alfama... More

The castle is the focal point of Lisbon - you can walk to the top from the city, catch an elevator from the supermarket half way up to 100 meters from the entrance, or take a tuk-tuk or cab. The ground is uneven and if you want to experience the whole castle there is a bit of climbing of steep... More

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
