Atop one of LIsbon's hills,the castle is a great place to wander about, enjoy the landscaped grounds, and take in some great views of the city. Half the fun of a visit to the castelo is getting there through the narrow winding streets. Take your time. Stop and go. Enjoy. It's Lisbon.

You can go by metro and Cassis but you will need to walk too. Your metro ticket can be used to get the cassis too. The entrance is 8,5Euros but the view is great. Enjoy the view of Lisbon

The history of the castle is interesting and the views of Lisbon are great. However, I wasn't completely blown away and wouldn't necessarily say this is a "must-do" in Lisbon.

We were happy we had taken a cab up to the castle -the climb is steep. Inside the castle is an excellent view of the city on all 4 sides, and fun climbs up the towers. We walked down which was fun the stop and look in all the shops.

Great views from the castle and plenty of opportunity to sit and have a drink and take in the views. It is physically demanding to get up there if you don't use the tram. There are also quite a few sheer drops here. I would say it might be dangerous with young children - if they had a fight they... More

This is a good excuse to travel on the famous number 28 Lisbon tram. It is only a fairly short walk from the tram stop to the castle but admittedly all up hill. There is a bus stop just below the main gate which travels to Lisbon's main tourist square. I would not recommend this trip for the mobile impaired.... More

To visit here is quite a hike up some very hilly terrain. Be prepared to take a long voyage. Had beautiful views of the entire city but to me was a bit pricey at 8.50€

Get lost wandering the uphill streets to Saint Jorge castle and end up in a beautiful castle with amazing view of Lisbon! There is a que for tickets, so get there earlier. Wander around the walls of the castle and enjoy this monumental building.

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
