Castelo de São Jorge - Lisbon：
Saint George Castle is a magical place, a charming hilltop citadel with geese and ducks roaming around the castle gardens. Once used as a fortress, today it is home to many local families and a place that certainly deserves a visit.
Visitors can climb the towers and walk along the reconstructed ramparts of the castle walls and wonder at the spectacular views over Lisbon and the Tagus river, while local men play backgammon and cards under the trees.
Conquered from the Moors in 1147, Saint George Castle has an area of around 6000 square metres with several towers, look-outs, a dry moat and two squares divided by an internal wall with a connecting door.
Also not to be missed on this castle is the Ogival House, with its five ogival arches, where you can see the 17th-century door that made the connection to the jails once located here.
The symbiosis between the castle and the landscape couldn't be better. Due to its historical background and the dazzling views it offers, this is the perfect place for a well-spent afternoon!
