“The Castelo de Sao Jorge stands majestically above Lisbon and is one of the finest tourist attractions in the city. The castle is entwined in Lisbon’s early history; it saw the fall of the Romans to the Visigoths, experienced the fierce conflicts between the Arabs and Christians, survived formidable sieges by the Castilians and witnessed the birth of Portugal as a seafaring nation. This varied and turbulent history is reflected throughout the castle. There are heavily fortified battlements, medieval royal quarters and seaward views, which inspired exploration within Portuguese kings.”
“One of the best viewpoints in Lisbon if not the best. Really worth of climbing. You have to climb 166 steps so for some people it may be hard. But the view, landscape are breath-taking.”
“This is a nice place to drink a cocktail (even without alcohol if you prefer) but go there to have an amazing experience. This place is very different and for me it is extraordinary!”
