One of Lisbon's must-visit attractions, you can see the Sao Jorge castle from almost anywhere in the old town. It's a solid climb up through Alfama's winding streets to get there, so pack good walking shoes (or take a taxi instead!).

Once there, you'll have unrivaled 360-degree views, plus the chance to wander the old castle walls, check out the old cannons on display, visit the camera obscura, and more. Plan to spend 1-3 hours inside, and arrive early or late in the day to avoid long ticket lines.

Food and drinks are available inside, and tickets cost €8.50 for adults and children 10 years and over.
