The castle is located at the highest place in Lisbon overlooking the city centre. Although the entry costs 8.50 euros it is completely worth it. Best option to come to the castle entrance is to take the bus 737 from Praca da Figueira. Highly recommend...More

The only good part about this castle is it’s views from the top. Otherwise I think it can be given a miss. It’s a ruined castle and adds no value except the stunning city views. But if you have ample time in Lisbon then just...More

This castle is an iconic structure of Lisbon, perched high above. You can either walk up from Baixa (downtown) or take the ancient, touristy tram number 28. Once at the castle, the aerial shots of Lisbon are amazing. A muse see, kids will like it...More

Definitely worth the trip to the top of the city to see the castle itself and also the view from the top. Worth the admission to tour the grounds and castle and the winding streets are charming.

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.
