Many people queue for one of the best attractions in Lisboa. It is worth to wait a bit because the view over Lisboa is awesome! Moreover, it is possible to walk on the walls and this offers an entirely adrenaline kick.

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

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.
