The Castle of Sao Jorge is renowned as a Moorish manor possessing a highly summoning topmost ridge disregarding the notable focus of the Portuguese city of Lisbon and Tagus River. The firmly sustained fortification dates since the medieval time of Portuguese history, and is one of the principle vacationer locales of Lisbon. The chateau's foot shaped impression is harshly square, and it was initially surrounded by a divider, to shape a fortification.
The stronghold complex comprises of the manor itself or the castelejo, and some subordinate edifices inclusive of the vestiges of the imperial castle, the arrangements, and a vast terraced square from which a great panoramic view of Lisbon is visible. The principle passageway to the fortress is a nineteenth century entryway surmounted by the ensign of Portugal, the name of Queen Maria II, dated the year of 1846. This door allows access to the fundamental square- the Praca d'armas.

Castle Of Sao Jorge, Lisbon Reviews - Write a Review
Definitely one of the most beautiful and interesting places in Lisbon (among the other millions there). There you can walk around a very well preserved and conserved ancient castle. The castle is very well structured to receive tourists with a very modern ticket center and also a cafeteria inside the walls. A good tip is to go there by walk or by taxi, because these vehicles as the only ones allowed to go up to the castle main entrance besides the locals residents. The landscape from the top of the castle is simply wonderful and you can see almost all the city, the river and the suburbs of Lisbon. It is definitely worth it the price and the visit.
The views from this locale at the top of Lisbon are just stunning. The area at the top is splendidly cobbled with big trees shielding visitors from the heat. The castle is fine, but it's just a replica. However, if you know all the amazing history which occurred here - Columbus begging the Portuguese king to take a chance on his voyage into the unknown - it makes the place much more special. And don't miss the museum here.
Castelo de Sao Jorge is my favourite sunset spot in Lisbon. There's a nice big plaza/open space as soon as you enter, the castle area is lovely to walk around and there's a Wine By The View cart to enjoy a wine with the subset. The sunset itself is spectacular and happens in stages. Post sunset the town looks beautiful all lit up.
Well worth it for the views, we went here first and then didn't feel the need to pay for all the smaller elevated decks throughout the city. Little museum is nice, didn't eat or drink at the restaurant. Interesting place, wish there was more info in English / info at all but was enjoyable all the same.
Very interesting castle that have kept many parts up to original standard. If you walk up there it will take some time, but definitely worth it! There was even peacocks walking around during our visit. If you are a bit interested in the castle itself it has several parts intact, you can get directions to different areas and I really enjoyed walking up and down different vantage points. It has something for those usually more interested in castle structure itself, and for pure viewing pleasure as well. There seemed to be food options in the castle itself, but waiting until you get to the local places seemed better for the wallet.
