A Reconquista do Castelo de S. Jorge aos Mouros e a Mouraria

This week we are going to climb up the hill to Castelo de São Jorge!

The Castle is a national monument, a famous attraction and played an important role in the history of Lisbon. Built by the Moors for defensive purposes, it was conquered by the Christians in the XII century. The tale of Martim Moniz originates from the siege of the castle.

The entrance to the castle is free for our students!

When: Wednesday, August 2, 3.00 pm | Where: In front of the ticket office of Castelo de São Jorge

Under Christian rule, the neighbourhood of Mouraria below the castle was the one where Moors were allowed to live. Today, it still is one of the most multiethnic districts. Moreover, it is known as the birthplace of Lisbon's most famous style of music - Fado.

Plenty of reasons to join us on this interesting tour!
