The 101 bus will take you directly to it, there is some good views of lisbon and the bridge, and theres not entrance fee. Not much else to do/see though

Brilliant view of Lisbon and the Estuary. Well worth the trip across the suspension bridge ... Which is good too. Tip: if you're not in rush hour drive across, park at ferry terminal and get ferry to Lisbon. Boat trip and views for minimal cost.

If you are in the area go to Cristo Rei Monument - you have a breathtaking view over Lisbon from there. You don't need to pay or to get on the top of Chapel, you have amazing viewpoints around the chapel!

Go there in the morning, open from 9:30, the quickest and cheapest way there is take the bus line 753 from metro station Plombal to Portagem included in 24 hours ticket (about 15 min),then about 10 min walking, lift for 5 EUR,rather windy at the top but the view of Lisboa is excellent, For return the same way or take...

Cheap entry and big free parking. Viewpoint is accessible by a lift operated by liftboy. On the top you find a small chapel and souvenir shop.

My husband and I took a bus tour, the Gray Line (specifically the Castle Route). We got off on stop number 5, rode the ferry over to Casilhas (sp?) then took the 101 bus to Cristo Rei. We had already purchased the Gray Line bus tour anyway, but the ferry and bus were very cheap. Under 10€ round trip for... More

I just can't describe how beautiful is the view of Cristo Rei. You can see the 25th April bridge witch is amazing, you can also see the river and a little bit of the coast and take a lot of pictures too. Besides the viewpoint, you can visit the sanctuary. Definitely, I recommend!

It was easy to get to this attraction without a tour. The ferry across the river to Cacilhas is cheap and comes every 10 minutes or so. Once you arrive you can opt to walk through the old city and walk up to the Cristo Rei - which is what I did. You can pick up a good brochure at... More

Went here on one of our days and while it is a bit off the beaten path of the other tourist spots this statue is impressive, even more so when you are directly beneath it. They have been doing some 'clean up' of the surrounding area as well. Best to take the Ferry over from Cais de Sodre (10 mins... More
