Beautiful on the outside, boring on the inside. This may not be worth your time or money. Be aware that there is a very limited amount to see on the inside, but it takes a rather long time to see due to staircase logistics. There is one staircase. When you want to go up, you must wait for a green arrow. The arrow will last 3 minutes, then turn red and beep for 45 seconds, then turn the other way (indicating you can only go down) for 3 minutes. You ultimately will get off at each floor, take just too much time reading the information, and then be left to wait for 3-4 minutes while the arrow points the other way. There are far better sights to see in Lisbon. This is also very out of the way from the main sights.

The water being pretty high and it being pretty stormy, made it quite a challenge to get to the castle dry. Once there the place was pretty small with not too much to read or interact with. The view was really nice though and made for some good picture opportunities. Consider stopping by if you're near and need to kill 30 minutes.

Closed on Every Monday. Even on today on Tuesday it’s again closed. Weather is good even then it’s closed. Unable to go inside continues two days. Better view from outside too good and everyone can see river Tejo and Atlantic sea all together. Overall It’s too good to go there. Must go there to see when in Lisbon.

Beautiful views of the water and a cool military tower to tour. Be prepared for a long line, though. I saw at least 1-2 families walk away due to the amount of time it took to get in. I’d say it was worth it. I enjoyed the military history displayed and my wife enjoyed this beautiful fortress and the few minutes we got to sit and enjoy the water.
