Enjoy the views of this arch from many different points form underneath it to the otherside of the square. It can get very busy with lots of people.

We were taken to the castle by Tuk Tuk and enjoyed walking among the ruins and up the towers. They afforded views of Lisbon that can't be matched. A must visit.

The most impressive part of the visit to the castle is the views of the city. Castle itself is fine & does not take long to stroll around. Make sure to visit the camera obscura - there is a 15 minute talk given in Portuguese...More

This attraction provides an interesting history of Lisbon. It is challenging to walk on the cobbled stones so it's important to wear good walking shoes. There's a small cafe within the castle grounds so one can rest a bit if it gets too tiring.

Fantastic place to spend a few hours. Long walk uphill thru' cobbled streets in a pictureseque district. Much to see outside, not quite as much inside, but the views from the walls / ramparts more than make up for this. There is a Restaurant inside...More

The view is spectacular and it quite extensive. The little bus 737 drops you right by the entrance to avoid the steep climb. Nothing much of the original castle surviving the earthquake so it's just the view. Uneven surface and low walls so not good...More

I think entrance fee is €8.50. It was nice to wander around the castle walls and the view over Lisbon is the best. It's high at the top of the hill so we asked our tuc tuc driver to end our tour there, which worked...More

Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
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.
