Wonderful and historic castle, this place remind you in med-eval time with amazing city view. However there's lack of tour guide and information which would make it better. Regardless this is must visit place when you in Lisboa. Great view and historic , how cool that you tell you friend that you been to a real castle.

One of the best places to see the city. Just love to stroll around this area and "loose" myself amoung the cobbled streets. You'll find some great esplanades to enjoy the views with a glass of wine:)

These citadel ruins are visible from most anywhere in the Baixa and Chiado districts. The castle isn't so much a residence, but a stronghold with great views of both the city and the shoreline. The archaeological museum within the complex contains artifacts of daily life - plates, jugs, tiles, personal effects. A daytime visit is ideal for truly studying the preservations and reconstructions of the fortress walls, but a night visit adds an air of mystery and a fantastic view of the Lisboa skyline. After touring the castle, head outside the walls and mingle with locals at the bars and restaurants of the Alfama district.

Lisbon has a number of hills and this one where Castle St. George is is the highest. Take the funicular up and then walk up to the entrance. The castle has been renovated and there is access to areas without the typical restraints. The views are the best in Lisbon and walking back you get to see the narrow streets and alleys up close.
