My wife and I finally visted after 12 years of coming to Lisbon, We first caught ferry across and the walked down along the river front past what looked like two lovely restaurants until we reached an elevator that took us from the riverfront to contnue the rest of our walk to the statue. The walk is not very picturesque... More

This place is so soothing, it is incredible. You have a beautiful vue from beneath and above, you can see everything. You must pay (5€) to go up but the chapel is free and you can leave a prayer for peace. Even if you are from another religion or no believer at all.

Ferry across the Tagus River, then the 101 bus takes you right up to the entrance of the statue for €2 return trip. Nice views across to Lisbon from the lookout area as well. The lift up the inside of the pedestal costs €5 and pics of the statue from that perspective are nice. But if you only want to... More

The ferry from Cais do Sodre leaves from a main hall by the river. The Viva card is valid on the route to Cacilhas, it costs according to the guatd's information at the entrance gate 7 euros there and back. The timetable is by the entrance for departures from the other side as well. Bus 101 return ticket 2 eur.... More

If you are in Lisbon and you want to see the most beautiful panorama of the city you should go to this place. You will pass the bridge "25 april" and you will arive at the statue. You should take the elevator and go up because it's stunning. Behind you will be the statue of Iisus, which is idk amazing!... More

It's a bit of a trek to get out here but the views are worth it and surprisingly, even on a July weekend, the queues aren't bad at all to get to the top in what's a pretty small lift. The views really are staggering from up there so do try to make it. You can look over the whole... More

Idyllic situated with the most stunning views of Lisbon. The view of the Ponte 25 de Abril gives you the feeling that you have been transported to San Francisco and you are viewing the Golden Gate Bridge. The humming sound of the vehicles on the bridge is therapeutic. You only pay to go up to the feet of Christ the... More

Great views and amazing piece of architecture, the only reason it didn't receive a 5 star is becuase the cafe didn't accept card and struggle to speak English

You can see this from Lisbon. First thing I really noticed and said I'm going. Brazil comes to mind. Upon arrival the breeze coming off the water is refreshing and the flute music in the background is serene. The chapel on the lower deck is breath taking, the chapel after the stairs is plain. The views from the top are... More
