Lisbon, Portugal for Sao Jorge Castle

Sao Jorge Castle is the top favourite tourist attraction in Lisbon. This castle has great medieval history and is considered as the birth place of today’s Lisbon, while containing traces of ancient Roman history. The stunning and beautiful view of castle kept you mesmerized with the well preserved and historically rich walls. You can climb on top walls where you can enjoy whole panoramic view of Lisbon city. This was the most attractive reason for me to visit this historically rich castle, as it shows the unique and charming view of amazing Lisbon city. It is a great place to enjoy your food with a great wine.
From inside the castle is quite large and has a room for lunch. You can stop at every nook and corner of the castle to praise the beauty of architecture. Around the castle is a beautiful garden where you can sit back and relax after covering a whole view of inside castle.
Talking about the entrance fee, it is very reasonable and affordable for everyone. It costs 8.50 Euros per person for adults, when I visited the place. Best way to go there is by tram, but it requires a slight walk of 20 minutes. For me this walk too was really enjoyable, as you begin to see historic beauty of the scene all along the way.
All in all it was worth visiting and a must see place whenever visiting Lisbon. It has once been home to kings of Portugal, that make it more awesome.
