You can easily spend half a day here, so bring some time. Enjoy the beautiful view, drink a glass of wine and learn about the historical background of this castle.

Brilliant visit. Views of Lisbon to die for. Cafe and restaurants if you want to eat or drink. Easy to spend a couple of hours there to soak up the atmosphere.

Wonderful way to end a day. You can get the best pictures of the sunset from this place. Very windy but has awesome views. It's nice to walk up and imagine being an archer from the castle walls.

Hike up the hill and twisty streets to visit the castle and the Se on your first day. The castle provides a beautiful vantage point over the entire city and will help you understand the layout and see all of the big sites from up...More

An ancient castle in Europe's oldest city. Fantastic views, you really get a sense of the strategic importance of the fortifications, and you get a sense of the many different periods of history.

Absolutely beautiful visit and views. Over 8 euros an entry, but definitely worth it. Today wasn't too busy so it was nice. Expect to spend between 45 minutes and 1 hour. Worth a visit for sure.

Visited the Castle early (we arrived at 10:00am) so the crowds were pretty light. I would definitely recommend this as the line to get in was probably 80 - 100 people long when we left at 12:30. The views of the surrounding city are beautiful...More

If you're looking for a castle experience then don't go. The views of Lisbon are amazing but can be experienced from many roof top bars. The 'castle' is the remains of the exterior only however the wine bar / van is cool. Wouldn't go again,...More

Professionally run. Lovely place beautiful views no suitable for children or some older visitors due to large amount of uneven steps. Worth it though.

A great place to visit for the best views over the city. Nice gardens and interesting castle. We took an Uber to the castle to avoid the walk up! Difficult terrain for anyone with mobility issues.

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

I presume you can see part of the views from the streets around the castle but it will not be an open view. But there is a kind of tourist package you can buy with good discounts, combining metro tickets and museums, take a... More

Hi there you can buy them just up at the Castle. There was a queue but it didn't take long to get to the ticket office. Adult 8.50 Euro, there were family tickets but not sure the prices. Well worth the visit.
