Great views, kids loved the peacocks most!

The castle is a beautiful thing in Lisbon - perched high up on the hill is looks amazing at night. The kids are free to get in so that is a bonus. Their favourite thing was the binoculars that you could pay €2 to look through and see the view. After that they loved the peacocks! They didn't get much from the museum or and castle itself which is essentially a ruin. We enjoyed it but the walls that you walk around the castle to enjoy the view were quite scary, safety rails not that high, i was convinced the kids were going to go over the edge. Great for the views of the city, but unless you love castle ruins, you might want to give it a miss.
