I really REALLY wanted to see this so I took the ferry across the river and attempted to walk up the hill figuring - hey it's huge, I'll see it eventually. Wrong! It got dark before I found it. (It wasn't a total fail, however, as I walked right upon getting off the ferry and took some amazing photos of a charming old fishing village). On day two, i woke up early, took the ferry and then took a bus up the hill. The statue is cool to see and from the top, you have a pretty view of Lisbon. I took my time wandering down the hill and stumbled upon an amazing cafe nestled in the hills.
