Castelo de S. Jorge

Monument

Built in the mid 11th century, this fortification still preserves its eleven towers, and features architectural elements from the military fortifications built under Islamic rule. The sets of stairs leaning against the castle’s walls provide access to the battlements and towers, which can be visited all around its perimeter. Due to its exceptional location, St. George’s Castle stands out from all of Lisbon’s viewpoints thanks to the unique and majestic views it offers its visitors.

Miradouro Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen

Viewing Point

An Ideal location to combine two things that really must be done in Lisbon: catch the 28 tram to Graça and sit at the Miradour da Graça taking in the view. The shadow created by the church and surrounding pine trees brings a feeling of spiritual retreat to those sitting on the terrace or surrounding walls. Located on the castle’s neighbouring hill, the view over Lisbon is both stunning and charming. With the city at its feet, everyday day life happening in in the surrounding historic neighbourhoods and the Tagus River flowing in the background, the sounds of the city dissapear, making this place as quiet as it is sought after by those who love exploring in Lisbon.

Sé Patriarcal de Lisboa

Monument

The Lisbon Cathedral is one of the city’s most iconic images and its most important church. Supposedly built over Lisbon’s main mosque at the time of the Christian Reconquest, its construction was completed at the beginning of the 13th century. The Romanesque style is predominant, but Gothic and Baroque have also left their marks on this church, which has undergone various modifications over the centuries.
