Walking through the ruins of St George Castle you can enjoy the most beautiful views over Lisbon and on the way down walk through the atmospheric Alfama district.

To get to the Castle there are many steps to climb but taxis do drive to the entrance or there is a bus / tram that stops close by.

Great views. Very picturesque. Clean cafe / wc's.
Helpful staff and very friendly.

Great for taking pics of the whole of Lisbon once at top of castle.

Would recommend a visit.

the castle St George, is well worth a paid visit for the stunning panaromic views of Lisbon.

The castle itself, i would called it a ruined ones unlike those in Edinburgh or in UK. however the views of Lisbon is stunning since this place is right on hill top.

We mix this visit with Alfama area wondering around

Nice to amble around an ancient but renovated monument with great views all around. But be careful of the very uneven paths and steps. The periscope seemed to have disappeared though and the archeological site was not really worth the climb up and down steps especially as there was a 20 metre ground level path close by that was strangely gated off. Restaurant was also very expensive.

Taking a walk along the walls of a majestic old castle overlooking a city is always great, and we fully enjoyed the astonishing view of the rooftops of Lisboa bathed in the sunlight of a warm day in spring. However, the site itself doesn't hold that much interesting stuff to make up for the entry price, so if you expect a full day's worth of exploration (the great Prague Castle comes to mind) you might leave just a tad disappointed.
