Built in the 11th Century, this is one of Lisbon's most famous landmarks. It is a very difficult walk to get up to see it but, it is well worth the effort. The views from the top of the city are stunning so make sure...More

This is a no miss visit. You actually travel through time when you step in. Besides, it can be a very relaxing experience. I particularly liked the views and the great opportunities to take waesome pictures.

From the city the Castelo de Sao Jorge is a short tram ride up through steep, winding twisty, narrow lanes and boy it is worth it. Your prize for getting to the Castelo upon, or just prior to, opening time is well recommended as when...More

Most of the time it has a queue for the entrance but it went really fast. Prepare your camera for the nice views inside and outside of the castle. I don’t recommend if you are going with elderly people as the way there can be...More

The view it's amazing, but there is not a lot to do there, besides taking a few pictures. So i think it is a little expensive... But it was a nice place!

Try and make sure you can take a tour so you hear about this, otherwise there are lots of old buildings that have very little meaning. I hope you see the peacocks UP THE TREES. who knew?

If you visit Lisbon then you should visit this Castle if only for the amazing views across the city.

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

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.
