The view from the castle is spectacular. We take as much as we can photos and I think IT wasn't enough. The place is worth to see it

Interesting. Possible to walk the walls and go into the towers. Camera oscura is of particular interest but only available at set times and limited number of people each time. Ancient site was closed. Cafe was open - and not bad. Best to get there...More

This is a must visit place while you are in Lisbon! The viewpoint, the castle and the park inside the castle are amazing. In addition, you can go there with tram 28 which itself is one of the must do things in Lisbon.

By visiting the Castelo, you will get your steps in! It provides some of the best views (and photographic) opportunities in Lisbon. I also took pleasure in seeing the peacocks that walk around freely.

We walked up to the Castelo and along the fortress’ ramparts for sweeping views of the city. Sao Jorge dates back to Lisbon’s Moorish period and its high perch makes it easy to see how the citadel was used for defense against invading forces. The...More

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

There are plenty of cafe's outside the castle and if you are hungry stop at Miss Can for lunch - we went there twice and it was so good! It's right down the hill from the castle.
