The conquest of Lisbon was a decisive step towards our nationality and independence.

Afonso Henriques, our first king is celebrated everywhere, and the castle is no exception.

Some people identify the small figure at the entrance as the king - it's a clear mistake: it's St Jorge and not the king whose statue is in evidence inside the castle.

Address: Rua de Santa Cruz do Castelo, 1100-129 Lisboa
