Ticketing was pretty smooth. Our guide however was fantastic. Her English was very good, she knew her stuff and was very accessible. I think the ladies on the group wanted to adopt her or marry her off to one of their sons. Anyway, it was a great experience. Thanks.

Travel Through Time at St. George's Castle

Start your journey by stepping into the enchanting St. George's Castle, perched atop Lisbon's highest hill. A knowledgeable guide, speaking the language of your choice, will escort you through the stronghold's ancient gateways, commencing a chronological exploration starting from the 6th century B.C.

As you tour the castle's stone-bound ramparts, be captivated by tales of the historical figures and transformative events that shaped Portugal. Marvel at the archaeological site, home to remnants of past inhabitants, and the castle's permanent exhibition that showcases artifacts spanning several eras. Learn of this building’s transformation from citadel to palace.

A Panoramic Finale

Proceed to the charming medieval village nestled within the castle's sturdy walls. Meander through the cobblestone alleys, past quaint houses, and a historic church, transporting you back to a bygone era. Then, ascend the Ulysses Tower, the castle's highest point. Here, behold Lisbon in all its glory with panoramic 360-degree views from the old district to the modern downtown area and the Tagus River.

Interestingly, the castle was the backdrop to Portugal's first romantic encounter between King Pedro and Ines de Castro – a little-known fact that adds a tinge of intrigue to the tour. This tour isn't complete without an encounter with the castle's resident peacocks and geese parading the grounds, a treat for all visitors.
