As one of the main tourist sites of Lisbon, Castelo de São Jorge is a Moorish castle built from medieval period of Portuguese history, while many of its walls extend around the citadel into the civil parishes that surround it to the east and south.

The castle complex consists of the castle itself (the castelejo), some ancillary buildings, gardens, and a large terraced square. A 19th-century gate is the main entrance to the citadel, and the gate permits access to the main square. At its highest point, the medieval castle is located toward the northwest corner of the citadel.
