View amazing but nothing else. Can have the same view from many other places in Lisbon, remember to use your bus ticket here for entrance and do not pay additionally.

The Old Clock Tower still chimes today and it is lovely to hear. You can see it standing it its glory above all the other buildings in the Old Town and hear it from just about all over the town. If you have a second, go and check it out. It is lovely to look at too!

Nice ambiance, fine old surroundings, gorgeous views and lots of tourists. Bring a cap, as the sun is pretty bright in Sept.
