For all you history buffs - this is great place to visit. Wonderful view over Lisbone. Best way for seasoned (older ;)) tourists is to take the green line hop-on-hop-off. For others - just walk up. Good way to get your heart going. A must...More

Really beautiful Moorish castle occupying a commanding hilltop overlooking the historic center of of Lisbon and Tagus River. Great place to take photos though I didn't learn very much about the history of the castle itself or what it's important. Definitely worth a visit due...More

I think this one is the best place to have a nice view of the city. You need to pay around € 7 to walk around the castle’s ruins and enjoy the stunning view of the city. I really recommend!

Not overly crowded and worth the visit. A historic site in a great city, lots to do! Have a glass or two of the fine Portuguese wines on the terrace overlooking the city.

Incredible views and a great visit. Spevially if you take the Tram 28 and stop at the Mirador. The castle is in great shape and fun to look and find incredible detaila and corners with the family. Great place to take pictures.

Other than the view there is not a lot to see, the museum is poor and the 8.50 price tag far too much

St Georges Castle dominates the Lisbon skyline and it is quite an adventure getting to it. The castle itself is a ruin, but one is able to walk along the battlements and go inside the turrets. There are also a steep set of steps along...More

The best views of Lisbon! You can walk on the castle walls - be aware the stairs are pretty steep and railings low.

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
