Castelo de São JorgeAbdul Muqeet Waheed
- One of Lisbon’s greatest recognizable sites is the historical castle known as Castelo de Sao Jorge or Sao Jorge Castle. It is situated at the top of So Jorge Hill, the tallest hill in Lisbon and home of the picture-perfect Alfama neighborhood.
- The Visigoths established a minor castle called Castelo de So Jorge in the 5th century. The Moors expanded it in the 11th century, and from the 13th through the 16th century, when both the Bishop and the King of Portugal lived there, it was at its most opulent.
