    Amazing views from the moment you cross the gate. Go at 4 when it's getting quieter and before you leave have a glass of wine from the wine with a view truck, sit on the wall and appreciate the view

    That's just marvelous, these castle walls you can see while Lisbon from, the green landscapes on the top make you feel refreshed any time being there. Must see for any crazy history lover like me!

    It's a "must visit" historic site in Lisbon. The view from the city is great and there are plenty of coffee shops and restaurants nearby that you can go to after

    Great view of Lisbon, if you're a student you get a discount on your admission fee, I especially loved the old cannons and the water well. Try to come early in the morning for a breathtaking view

    Worth for the Lisbon view, take the walk option to get to it, trams are quite crowded. A nice (but pricey restaurant inside, some good Nata coffee shop next to the castle entrance)

    It's a castle. You go in castle because it's high. You go high because it's good pictures. It's good pictures because your friends be jealous. Duh.

    Come here at half 9 when It opens if your a photographer and want to take clean shots without many tourists around. B careful walking along the edge of the castle as you can fall off !

    Wonderful views across the city, but I was missing any sort of historic feeling when I wandered through 20th century concrete reconstructions of what used to be the historic birthplace of Lisbon.

    Splendid view of the city of Lisbon. You can climb up the walls of the castle, look around the grounds and visit the on-site Archeological museum. The entry prices (June 2013) were a decent €7.50.

    Really a great place! Beautiful views over all the city, even if you have to "hike" up to the towers of this castle. Entrance price reduced for students under 25 years. Free wifi.

    The beautiful Saint George Castle is where you'll get a glimpse of Lisbon's history as well as get amazing views of the city and the Tagus River. Pay close attention to the amazing Ogival House.

    Fantastic views across Lisbon. The gardens are very scenic and the peacocks were a nice surprise. Worth the walk up the hill from town, too, if you can manage it.

    Nice place to hang out for a long time. Half a day? Easy! Peacock families walking around people, parrots (go to archeological area), cats relaxing under bushes, and castle on its own

    One of the most beautiful castles ive been too. The grounds are large enough that it does not feel crowded. Note: periscope closes at 5pm so be sure get in before then.

    This impressive 10th-century crenellated castle and citadel where Celts, Romans, Visigoths, and Moors successively held sway has knockout views of the Alfama.

    Earliest Lisbon settlements here in 6th cen. BCE; oldest castle remains from the Moorish era. Captured from Moors by A. Henriques in 1147. Royal residence until 1511. See views and historical tours!

    The stair climb is work the effort as it allows one to walk the total perimeter of the upper walls. The views from the top are inspiring!

    Just the view of Lisbon would be enough but it's also great to walk around the castle and explore it! It's better to go early in the morning to miss the crowd of tourists!

    Pro Tip!!!! don't leave without finding a lady selling coins. Her husband is a true artist and makes jewelry out of them. I've posted a photo of it

    Stop at the wine cart and you can walk around with a glass of wine or port

    Amazing view above the city. And easier to access than other viewpoints. Inside the castle you have a cafe.

    Any King fit enough to rule this Castle? To get to the castle you can catch Tram 28 in chiado or baixa or Tram 12 in Praça do Martim Moniz.

    Only reason to pay 8.5€ is the view...it's nice medieval castle with quite a few interesting corners but only spectacular thing is the view... Gets pretty crowded on weekends

    It's all about the view of Lisbon, which is amazing. All that remains from the castle are the walls. 8,5 euro ticket

    Get a student discount with your student ID if you are under 25. Go a bit earlier to avoid tourist crowds

    Even always it's worth, prices have raised exaggeratedly without any other complementary service. Journalists now have to book in advance.

    View is good, rest of the castle is overrated. If you are not a big fan of landscape photography, skip the hassle for the castle.

    Mind the lines at the ticket counter. A nice visit can easily turn into a nightmare if the buses have been unloading packs of tourists.
