We had a nice afternoon walk in middle age surroundings Beware of slibbery floors/stairs. The trip up there is quite long and uphill. Worth a couple of hours walkimh arround.

We hesitated before visiting the castle but afterwards we did not regret it because it is really beautiful! Not so much expensive if you are a student. The attractiveness of this place is mainly due to the wonderful view it offers.

Interesting Castle with great city views. Would have liked more explanation/description of what everything was in the castle along with the history. The program and signs were not sufficient. A self guided audio tour would have been helpful.

Great views, not much to see in the castle itself but if you can go for the guided tour around the archaeological site- free, in English and very well done

Though the sprawling views of Lisbon are great, the walk up the hill to Castelo de S. Jorge is grueling, hot, and tiring. The $8 entrance fee is high, and the castle itself is nothing compared to the other castles of Europe.

The castle was fine but we visited with our son and were told that the family ticket is only available if you have 2 children, not with one child. So you pay 5 euros MORE with one child than you would with 2 children, which...More

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

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.
