São Jorge Castle
The most prominent of Lisbon’s seven hills, the hill that's crowned by São Jorge Castle was the object of desire for all the conquering empires that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. Romans, Visigoths, Moors and Portuguese Christian kings all chose the Castle Hill as their headquarters. Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood, the Alfama, is a cobblestone maze of streets and crooked buildings that runs down the hill from the castelo to the river, adding charm to this view from the water.
