“(Historical monument) São Jorge Castle and the Christian Conquest to the Moors: We know now that the wellknown history of Martim Moniz who was stucked in the door of the Castle is just a legend. Cruzaders had to report heroic efforts during the Christian conquest, when they were camping during 4 months until the moors left because of starvation. In fact, Lisbon was not liberated throught fighting and guns, even at that time. History showed that the mossanas were pacific people. Jews and Christians only had to pay an extra tax, but they use to work in the government and they did not suffered of starvation. They have been even more mistreated after the conquest, by the Christians. The mystic was only built to justify the need of conquest and the purpose was only to obtain recognition.”

“The castle is worth visiting by force of the fact that, next to the Tile Museum, it is one of the best places where splendid tile panels (inside and outside the castle, the garden included, rendering religious episodes, battlefield sets and hunting scenes) can be admired in Lisbon. The edifice is located in Benfica and while surrounded by an exquisitely landscaped garden, it is an oasis of greenery and tranquility. The palace was built in 1640 for the first Marquis of Fronteira, Dom Joao de Mascarenhas (bestowed with the title of Marquis of Fronteira for his allegiance to King Pedro II of Portugal), in order to serve as hunting pavilion. At present, the oldest part of the castle complex refers to a 16th century chapel, but inside the castle, visitors can admire the stunning Battle Room (which stands out by the splendid tile panels due to which the room has been dubbed the Sistine Chapel of Tile Panels), as well as the Dining Room (with highlights like the paintings signed by Domingos Antonio de Sequeira). Outside the castle, visitors can search out the carefully arranged garden, which fills a surface of some 5.5 hectares, offering the spectacular scenery of the ingeniously cut hedges, tile panels and a statuary where sculptural works rendering the Kings of Portugal (chiefly, busts) are displayed. Given, as said, the castle is private property, only guided visits are available. ”

“This square was use for roman circus with gladiators. It is an open space and it was the first area of Lisbon to be cobbled, as ordered by the King D.Manuel I. For a long time, we believed that the statue of the King D. Pedro IV in the middle of the Rossio Square was the statue of the mexican emperor Maximiliano. People use to say that the 2 statues were switched by mistake and that the real statue was sent to Mexico. But recently, the last analyses revealed that the statue has the look of our King and the Portuguese crest with the History of Portugal. See also Figueira Square (near) This square was not supposed to be a square and should have been rebuilt. The market use to use this location and the Hospital “Todos os Santos” (All Saints).”
