The Castle Saint George is an ancient Moorish fortress at the top of one of the highest hills in Lisbon. It has been so renovated as to loose some flavor, but the views are fantastic and the air is bracing. The little neighborhood around the castle, and which lies within the castle walls, is also pretty cute.

Address: Rua de Santa Cruz do Castelo, 1100-129 Lisboa
Directions: Careful, the Castelo closes earlier than you would suppose, and the ticket booth closes half an hour earlier than that.
