What people are saying:

São Jorge Castle is one of Lisbon’s oldest buildings and one of the most important attractions. The castle was built on the highest point in the Alfama area, and a small community called Santa Cruz still remains in the fort. As early as the 6th century BC, there were traces of human settlement here, and many ethnic groups such as Phoenicians, Greeks, and Carthaginians left their footprints here. The castle has a long history. It was built by the Celts in the 5th century. Later, the Moors and Christians reinforced it on the original foundation. Later, it was transformed into a palace. Covering an area of 6000 square meters, it was once an important strategic commanding height and was successively occupied by rulers of various eras. The touching story of the crusaders who attacked the castle has been circulated to this day. Legend has it that the knight Martin Moniz saw the gate with only a small opening and used his body to prevent the gate from closing, so that the army went smoothly. Attacked the castle and drove away the Moors.
