Probably the best view we got of Lisbon. Great birds eye view of the city and a good photo spot. Not sure if it was worth the 8€ admission tho. The castle was nothing that special but we also didn't really know what we were...More

It's well worth the trip up to see, the views are breathtaking and the castle itself is stunning, I would suggest going early or late in the day due to the heat.

Spent a couple of hours here in beautiful sunshine admiring the fabulous views. Admission price is good value and because the building is large and there is a lot of open space, it never felt too crowded.

This is one of the most visited places in Lisbon so come early to avoid the queues ! Views over the city are wonderful & if you come early you can enjoy a peaceful iced coffee ( delicious !) in the coffee shop.

First, we paid 8.50 Euro per person, which I think is reasonable for a renowned attraction. Second, if you are coming from the nearest Metro station (Martim Moniz or Rossio), I would have appreciated if there were signboards pointing us to the general direction of...More

This castle is a very good way to see Lisbon from a different angle! Locals don't pay and tourists just pay 5€.

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.
