Very cool castle and grounds. Breathtaking views of the city at sunset. Worth the steep climb. Walking the grounds can be tricky - very uneven cobblestones in some areas.

This is a very cool castle with a lovely view of Lisbon. If you've already been to Sintra, this Castle doesn't have that much to add, but it's still a nice trip. Recommendation: get there early! The line get very long by about 10am. The...More

Not a great deal to see as just ruins but lovely views. Go either early or later to avoid the crowds and the heat.

It didn't quite live up to the €8.50 ticket price, there wasn't much of story inside to read or follow as we wandered around the castle walls. There is a great view and it's nice being up on the walls, but the steps are quite...More

We decided to walk up the hill to this site and were surprised how short was. We queued for entry tickets but this did not take long and soon we were inside the gates in a lovely tree-covered terrace with magnificent views over Lisbon. We...More

Don't miss the camera obscura- an interesting way to see the city in real time reflected in the lense. Check timetables for tours in your language

The castle and surrounding parks are a delightful walk and one could easily spend the entire day just leisurely strolling around the castle complex and admiring the architecture, and soaking it all in, as we say. I would recommend that one takes his time, spending...More

You can easily spend half a day here, so bring some time. Enjoy the beautiful view, drink a glass of wine and learn about the historical background of this castle.

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

I presume you can see part of the views from the streets around the castle but it will not be an open view. But there is a kind of tourist package you can buy with good discounts, combining metro tickets and museums, take a... More

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.
