“Fantastic scenic viewpoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

We visited the Miradouro de Senhora do Monte as part of a one hour tuk tuk tour around Alfama. The cost was E 45 for the hour on board.
The view from do Monte was of course fabulous - a superb vista of Lisbon, as good as any you will find.
Is it THE best as many sites suggest? Perhaps, but it is really that much better than the splendid views from the Castle.
We certainly enjoyed our visit there.

“It used to be a hidden marvel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2015

It is hard to get there if you're not fit, and even if you are you will be panting when you reach the top. But it will be worth every single step you took - the sight is a great payoff, and the breeze is a bonus.

Problem is, it is hard to find a place to sit there, since it has become increasingly popular. It is, however, still more quiet and peaceful here than in Miradouro da Graça, partly because there is no cafe/kiosk here (so I recommend you bring your own beverage).

Also, there will be a lot of Tuk Tuks there too.

“Beautiful at sunset!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2015

Lovely panoramic views from this outlook point in Graca. There is a kiosk/café where one can sit and enjoy drinks and snacks.

“One of the best privaate collections”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2015

The permanent collection is good, but do check out if there another temporary exhibit. When I visited, they had the private collection of the royal family of Spain. Overall, you can spend about 2 hours watching each exhibit.

“Spectacular view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2015

My husband and I happened upon this view by chance while wandering around the Graca area of Lisbon. Wow! It says a lot about a city when a view this beautiful can be accessed for free, and while just exploring the area. I plan to return with a camera next time!
