Post Castel de Sao Jorge Walk


In an effort to avoid summer crowds on a Friday, we plan on arriving at Castelo de Sao Jorge at 9 AM and tour the Castle. Following that, we thought we would visit in the following order:

São Vicente de Fora/Monastery of St. Vincent Outside the Walls

National Pantheon

Miradouro de Santa Luzia

Roman Theater Museum

Lisbon Cathedral

If my map reading skills are correct, these appear to be reasonably close (we love walking and prefer it to public transit where feasible) and mostly downhill.

Could someone advise me if this is a doable walk?

You are right! Everything you plan to visit is within reasonable walking distance, but - as you mention - not flat at all...

Enjoy your stay!

Go to the castle using the lifts at Rua dos Fanqueiros and Chão do Loureiro (free), visit the Castle then walk to São Vicente de Fora Monastery (go up till the roof, it has amazing views), National Pantheon, Miradouro das Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia (have a stop and take a drink). Roman Theater Museum it's closed for 9 months (maintenance works), finally Lisbon Cathedral
