We walked to the site, up all the cobbled pathways and stopped at the castle. Interesting to visit, tested my nerves at times as the safety barriers were basic in places along the battlements.

The castle is so visible from everywhere, that you can't miss it, but to see it from the inside is definitely worth the effort; and it is an effort climbing the steep steps, and negotiating the crowds, even in the winter, but don't let that...More

It is worth the visit just for the views of Lisbon. I would recommend visiting on a day when the sun is out. There are quite of few great spots to view the city, both from the parts of the castle and from the outside...More

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

Hi there you can buy them just up at the Castle. There was a queue but it didn't take long to get to the ticket office. Adult 8.50 Euro, there were family tickets but not sure the prices. Well worth the visit.
