Nice view but little else. Missed opportunity for education and appreciation of what actually happened here. Absence of displays (visual or audio) compared to other castles visited over the years. Kids were bored.

Another must-see attraction. Stop off at the square with statue of Sao Miguel first to take in the view and prepare to take lots of pictures and selfies! Then head to the Castle. Lots of walking and climbing!

Definitely worth a visit but quite a trip to get there as have to go via the 28 tram and it is a bit rough. But certainly an experience. Castle so old and views amazing

We got there 0845 on Saturday morning and were first in the ticket queue (opens 0900). Perfect timing. We were done by 1000 having had great views and photos, and we enjoyed the little museum. The castle itself is not very interesting.

Visited the castle, and it was surprisingly good, with a generous mix of restored and original ruins. Lots of high walls to explore and superb vistas of Lisbon to capture great photos. Well done, one of the better castles we’ve visited.

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.
