Marred by pick pockets - a casual walk up to the castle spoiled by pick pockets. Thankfully I noticed my bag was opened before I lost my phone and wallet 😢

Quite a trek to get up to the castle itself. Although we went in March, the place was thronging with tourists. I would recommend a second visit, so much to see, not only the castle itself but the panoramic views over old Lisbon and across...More

If you're not overly mobile grab a 737 minibus, but the climb is worth it as you pass individual shops with none of the typical purchase pressures. The Lisbon card gives you a discount, and the various areas of the castle provide good views across...More

Visit to Lisbon must include the Castle. A walk around the walls gives access to great photo shots of the City and river. The Peacocks are also an attraction in themselves. A small cost gets you in and you can spend as much time as...More

It's a nice walk from Chiado to the castle. The entrance fee is 8.5 Euro. I think it totally worth the price. You have a great view of the whole city. You can even see cristo Rei from the castle.

On the recommendation of a friend, we walked up from our cruise ship which took about 45 minutes. The entrance fee was a very modest €8.50 each, which we thought a bargain. The castle is a good size, with excellent views over Lisbon and many...More

We visited the castle in March. First all it must be noted that it is worth paying the entry fee to the castle for the surrounding views of the city which are fantastic. However, from an historical viewpoint, I was very disappointed with information available...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

You have to pay to get in to see the views, but there are also amazing free views just down the street at the Miradouros. I mean, the castle is really cool and well worth visiting, but it really isn't worth it for just the... More

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.
