The São Jorge Castle sits in the historic center of the beautiful Lisbon, Portugal. This Moorish castle overlooks the entire city from a hilltop and gives you the extraordinary view seen in the picture. This capital city has a history dating back centuries and includes many excellent places to visit including Belem Tower, a medieval defense tower, Jerónimos Monastery, a World Heritage Gothic Monastery and, of course, São Jorge Castle, where this week’s photo was taken from of the city below!
