  Castelo de São Jorge
by schmechi
 
 

The first impression you'll see, when reaching the city of Lisbon will be the castle. It is enthroned on a hill and it is an eye catcher wherever you are.
Inside you can wander around shady, romantic places, but there is nothing too spectacular: There are some ancient excavations, some old cannons will stand at the side and you can even walk along the balustrades of the centuries years old fort. The best thing is the astonishing view of the town from there, making Castelo de São Jorge to one of the most beautiful miradouros of Lisbon.

Address: Castelo de São Jorge
Directions: If you're on the way to Alfama from Baixa just turn left at Miradoura de Santa Luzia (Rua de Chão d. Feira).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
