This is a great look back into history, a great view of the city from high up and the people watching is entertaining. Be sure to get the small portion liqueur shots (I forgot what they are called) from the vendors before you go in;...More

Walking up the hill (steep) to the castle itself, you feel as if you have stepped back in time. There are souvenir sellers and small businesses in buildings that have existed since the Moors created the fort that the castle is built on top. Quite...More

On my recent trip to Lisbon took one of the hop on hop off busses & it took me up to the castle. It’s worth the trip up there just for the view alone & the old town is stunning

It’s great - good value and views to die for, walk around battlements worth doing but I imagine this would be hard work in the Summer. Camera Obscura worth 20 mins of our time and a gentle walk around the gardens with a glass of...More

A wonderful experience of an historical fort. Many stairs and wandering places, even a spot to stop for a glass of Vino Verde. On the top of the hill, difficult to get to, no parking

We walked up to the castle on the last day you can spend a couple of hours wandering around and taking in the breathtaking views of Lisbon. The cost is reasonable so worth seeing.

Lovely clear day. Amazing views. Busy spot. Walk up to it, you’ll really get to appreciate the local area. Tram 28 goes by the square at the bottom, or multiple Tuc Tuc operators bring you close to it if you prefer. Breathtaking.

It was great fun to explore the grounds of this castle. The very, very old olive trees were a feature not mentioned in the literature.

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
