The last time I've been here was to watch a movie, in a horror movie festival, one of many events taking place in this cinema. It's not a modern place, it has history, and tons of personality. Maybe because of it, people usually feel so comfortable around.

We caught Tram 28 to here and took the Metro back. The site entrance is a little hard to find and 70% of tourists end up talking to a guard at the tradesman's entrance and he will only show you where to go on a paper map not a smartphone or tablet. Once in you can go off exploring in... More

I came here following the map and reviews to see why in the opposite side of the real castle people wrote about the castle and its views: this is the cinema.indie, very cool place to see, grab a coffee and watch "cinema independiente". This.is not the real castle!

The castle is rather tricky to find as you walk up various streets and alleys to reach the entrance. But on the way there, it is a nice walk past old neighborhoods and churches. The castle is a great view overlooking the city. It appears to be the highest point in Lisbon. While there’s not much in the castle inside... More

In spite of terrible weather I climbed the hill to see the Lisbon. It is really the great tight mosaic with thick silver border of Tag river. I made a lot of pictures from all around the place. There are nice looking bars and restaurants next to the castle. Small shops offer various local art and tourist staff.

Great place to see entire Lisbon from an elevation. If you can plan to spend around 3 hours to see the castle and to take some pictures with beautiful peacocks - an entire muster is located at the castle! Also recommend going in the morning to have the eastern sun for beautiful pictures.

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
