Rampart Views
As I stood next to an ancient canon that was positioned on a wall at the Castelo Sao Jorge, I had a fantastic view of the Tagus River, the April 25th Bridge, the Christ statue on the opposite shore, and the Praca do Comercio in Lisbon. I had an ancient view that soldiers in ancient times shared as they stood on the castle's ramparts to defend the city. Use your Lisboa Card ( available at TI's) to get into the castle at a discount. Tour the castle and experience a journey back in time in the history of Lisbon, Portugal. Each time I visit Lisbon, I visit the Alfama and the Castelo. Each time, there are more improvements. The castle enables you to imagine yourself on the site centuries ago. This is one of Lisbon's top attractions. Take Trolley #28 up to the top and get off and walk up to the fantastic castle. After your visit and tour, stop at one of the areas restaurants for lunch.
