Built by the Moors, who gave the town the name of Lissabona, the castle was a prominent place to watch the Tage and the surrounding hills. Its recapture took several centuries and it was only in the 13th century, when the city became capital of the country, that the castle became royal palace - it was there, in particular, that Vasco de Gama celebrated his Indian discoveries in the fifteenth century. Today you can walk around its impressive ramparts, which offer an extraordinary view of the Tage and the city. In the summer, singers and actors revive its glorious past, under the watchful eye of the peacocks who cheer in the courts. Do not hesitate to stroll through the small cobbled streets around the castle. The "miradouros" (esplanades) and their panoramic views, the colored facades or covered with azulejos, as well as the bougainvilliers, that decorate with flowers the turnings of the alleys, bring happiness to the visitors. Many restaurants and shops offer Portuguese specialties: embroidered linen, objects made of cork, colored cocks, liqueurs and various sweets .... If your steps lead you to the Costa do Castelo, push the door of number 7 : The circus school that settles there offers a very convivial bar and restaurant on the hillside ("Chapito a mesa"). With My Home In Lisbonne, book your Castelo Sao Jorge vacation and immerse yourself in Portuguese history and traditions.
