BEFORE THE CASTLE
28 JAN – 22 APR – 22 JUL – 28 OCT
Discover all the history and archaeology of the periods before the construction of the castle: the cultures that arrived in the city of Lisbon between the 8th and 3rd centuries B.C. and the impact that they had on trade, urbanism and the material culture of the period. Learn about the marks left by arrival of the Roman Republican Army in the 2nd century B.C. and how their presence would later transform Lisbon into an imperial Roman city until the arrival of the Visigoths in the 5th century.

THE CASTLE, THE ALCÁÇOVA (CITADEL) AND THE CONQUEST OF THE CITY
25 FEB – 27 MAY – 26 AUG – 25 NOV
An exploration of the medieval castle and citadel and its relationship with the city itself. Focusing on the defensive structures of the medieval city of the 11th to 12th centuries, as well as the social, religious and economic situation of the time. This was the scene encountered by the Christian military contingent led by Afonso Henriques who, after a long siege of approximately four months, entered the city on 25 October, 1147, hoisting the Christian standard.

THE CASTLE FROM THE 13th TO 16th CENTURY: THE ROYAL RESIDENCE
25 MAR – 24 JUN – 23 SEPT – 23 DEC
Visible from several points of the city, the castle of Lisbon rises up on the hill standing out from the contemporary urban fabric. Within its walls, we might wonder where the Royal Court was situated. But the Lisbon reality is different from other European realities and the castelejo (uppermost part of the castle) is a fortress. Throughout the visit, we will explore the visible traces of the Royal Palace of the Alcáçova, used by the Kings of Portugal during the transition from the Middle Ages to the Modern Age. Subject of successive transformations between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries, it witnessed many historical figures and events of relevance to the history of the country.
