Castelo de São Jorge

São Jorge Castle was the birthplace of Lisbon. Situated 111 meters above the waters of the Tagus, the castle and walls underwent successive adaptations over the centuries. The current appearance is that of a medieval building, with 10 square-shaped towers, where the ruins of the Royal Palace still remain. It is a pleasant space to stroll around, and for this purpose, you can choose either the gardens, which date back to 1942 and where geese and ducks roam, or the narrow alleys of the tiny neighborhood of Santa Cruz, located within the castle walls. Visitors can also climb the towers and stroll along the walls of the castle, which has one of the main viewpoints in Lisbon.
