This is a continuation from: ‘Seven great stops along the Lisbon Tram 28 Route‘
If you find yourself worrying about finding your way through the labyrinth of pathways from the Sé Tram 28 stop to Castelo Sao Jorge, fret not.
Google Maps has some really good streetviews, that made it very easy to find our way. All we did was cache Google maps in our phone and took some screenshots to identify the landmarks of the streets where we should make a turn.
Big thanks to Google Maps for the directions and street views! Disclaimer – these images are updated as of 2009. When I was there in 2014, the streets still looked pretty much the same, and there were signages guiding tourists to Castelo Sao Jorge.
7 easy directions from the Sé Tram 28 stop to Castelo Sao Jorge
From the Tram 28 stop, head towards the direction of the Lisbon Cathedral. Our journey begins.
1. Head northeast on Largo da Sé toward R. Pedras Negras (25 m)
From Lisbon Cathedral (on your right), head straight down in this direction, to R. Pedras Negras.

3. Turn right onto Calçada Correio Velho (55 m)
When you reach the end of R. Pedras Negras, turn right into Calçada Correio Velho. It looks something like this. Walk straight for 55m.
4. Short cut – Slight right onto Escadinhas de São Crispim -Take the stairs – (190 m)
5. Turn left onto R. Bartolomeu de Gusmão (71 m)

Lisbon Cork Souvenirs
If you’re on the hunt for souvenirs, Lisbon cork items make good gifts. Walk further down Rua do Chão da Feira (Step 6) and you will find several shops selling them. They come in magnets, coasters and more.
