São Jorge Castle offers one of the most magnificent views over Lisbon and the Tejo river. A restaurant and ballrooms are located in the inside. It rises upon one of Lisbon’s hill over downtown. This spot has always offered good defensive conditions and has been inhabited since ancient times. After the conquer of Lisbon to the Moors in 1147 by King D. Afonso Henriques, D. Dinis built there the Royal House, 250 years after. In the 16th century the royal court is transferred to Paço da Ribeira. It suffered major damages in the earthquake and its current appearance is the result of the works that were carried out in the 40’s under Estado Novo regime.
