Castle overlooks all of Lisbon - fantastic views, especially from the ramparts. if the weather is good, walking the entire site is well worthwhile. If a break is needed, there is a lovely restaurant or if too grand, very nice outdoor cafe.

The castello was demolished during an earth quake and is only partial rebuild. From the outside it looks impressive but that are only the walls. The views over the city are great because of its location

Lots of walking and clambering up stairs to the battlements. Not a place to take young kids that are hyperactive as there are plenty of unsafe areas to have an accident. Not for the infirm due to all the slopes and steps. Sorry about the...More

The Castle is very large and there are many stairs to go up to and enjoy an even better view. From the garden you can see the 25th April bridge in the background and the old part of Lisbon.

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

You can get the Yellowbus tour and get the train in Praça da Figueira (Figueira's Platz). You can also go by walking, but it´s a big hill.
