Lisbon is one of the most ancient cities in the world. Full of history, charm, delicious food, warm people and blessed with a geographical beauty it's one of the best places to visit.
Castle of Sao Jorge or Saint George Castle can be a magical place to explore. Set on a hilltop high above Lisbon, it was once used as a fortress by the Moors until it fell in 1147. Today a popular tourist destination, this monument to the past was restored to preserve its history, and still allow it to be a very user friendly place to visit.
Visitors to Lisbon can explore the castle to their heart's content, and everyone is encouraged to do so in a very hands-on manner. You can climb up into the towers and see what the ancient Moors saw: rolling hills and spectacular views of the city and the Tagus River. You can walk the restored ramparts, gazing out on the countryside, and hear the echoes of battles past.
The castle is still intact for the most part and wows visitors to this monument every year. It has an area of around 6.000 square meters, with terraces, towers, lookouts and a moat. It is the perfect place to spend the day exploring and taking in the sights.
