The museums and this fort are exactly the same, this prime example of a tourist fleecing is just a badly restored fort from 1849, nothing really to see, the view isn't even that spectacular, a waste of time energy and money

Probably worth popping up for the view over Lisbon but at €8.50 it's a little pricey for a relatively basic castle with relatively basic exhibitions.

Best views of the city that I've seen thus far. Inexpensive, informative museum, and plenty of shade to enjoy in and around a 10th century castle

With the exception of an impressive view of the city it is not much to see. The most interesting character was a peacock strolling around with it's tail up in the castle garden.

Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and,
of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.
The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755
destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained
standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent
Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the
Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
