This is a must see in Lisbon, in my opinion, to further understand its history and its main defence ports.

Great morning out. Go early to avoid the queues & possibly the wind. Views of the city are beautiful as well as of the surrounding area

i love seeing this tower the history of it is facinating alone. But i love architecture and was blown away by this tower that is only accessible during low tide. That last part was a bit of a bummer as we didn't know that before coming and arrived later in the day however this did not make me think any less of the tower it's amazing make a point to take time out of your day to come see this location (and make sure you do it earlier than we did which was around 4 or 5 pm. Also for a good history make sure to look this up online like i did.

Beautiful building. Took a long time to get in as they only let a certain number in at a time. Nothing much inside, you just go up to the top. Was ok
