Against all odds I decided to take a walk from the city center to the palace, I lived to regret the move as it's on a hill. One thing I never regretted was getting there. This place is AMAZING. If there's one of those places...More

Palace is very beautiful but involves a lot of climbing. You get to see a lot of the different rooms and they are still restoring a lot of the other rooms. I recommend visiting not in the peak of summer, it will be very crowded...More

This was one of the highlights of my trip. I absolutely loved it. It was raining and super foggy all day however so there wasn’t a view and photographes could have turned out better. So if you aren’t into the EdgarAllen Poe vibes I’d suggest...More

Surrounding park is amazing - we visited in December and there was a mist all over the place so it had this nice climate. Castle is boring. Exhibition is poor because of undergoing renovation. You won't be excited about few beds and couple of glasses...More

We visited this attraction in December on a very misty day, which added to the beauty of this place. Our 6 year old very quickly became bored with the interior of the palace, as well as the slow line making its way through it. We...More

When you're done hiking all the way up and catch your first glance of the palace, you're going to think that the person who designed it and then painted it that way must be nuts. But the fact that the palace looks so strange is...More

Magical place and a must visit when in the Lisbon area. Take the path through the gardens up to the castle. It’s a gorgeous walk.
