Saint George Castle is situated on the hilltop in Lisbon. From the high walls of the castle one can have a view of the whole city.

The Tower of St Vincent is considered to be one of the main symbols of Lisbon and the national pride of the whole country. This famous building is one of the so-called Seven Wonders of Portugal. Around 30 years ago the tower became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The symbol was built at the beginning of the 16th century to honor the discovery by Vasco da Gama the sea route to the Indian subcontinent. The bottom floor of the tower has a wonderful terrace and the top point has a great view of the surrounding area.
