Rua do Chao de Feira, which means ‘street fairground’, is located in front of the main door at the Castelo de São Jorge (Castle of Saint George), the premier tourist attraction in Lisbon. The castle, built by Moors during the medieval period of Portugal, sits on a hilltop overlooking the city center and the Tagus River, which is also partially visible in the background.
