There are many reasons to visit this castle, from its ramparts to towers and accessible (if vertiginous) wall walks, but perhaps best are the phenomenal views of the City of Lisbon. There is also a pleasant cafe within the walls, very tame peacocks and sleepy...More

Beautiful view of Lisbon city! The castle has an interesting story, as well, so would recommend reading a little bit about it. Cheap entrance for students as well.

If you make the walk up to the fortress, the views over Lisboa is fantastic. The ruins are okay as well, but not remarkable in any sense.

We ended up at the castle after a walking tour. It’s well worth the climb. The views over Lisbon are amazing. Go to the archialological site and do the tour. It’s very interesting.

I didn't see any but there are so many tame peacocks about that I imagine even the most chill dog would freak out a bit.
