If you want to take magnificent pics of Lisbon: this is the place to visit. Take the elevator to the top and start clicking! It is not easy to find (as a tourist) but it's worthwile. Only disturbing thing is the noise from the bridge.

Toured this while on a bus from or Princess Cruise. The place is high on the hill and overlooks parts of Lisbon. Took many pictures for viewing later. You see the Brige resembling the Golden Gate, built by American Bridge

a must visit! you should reach the top through the elevator! the view of the whole Lisbon city is magnificent. The statue looks exactly like the one in Rio de Janeiro. Do not miss to spend a few minutes to study why this was built!

What a tremendous view. It really is spectacular and great to see the whole of Lisbon. We went at midday and there was no queue. €10 per person seems a bit expensive.

This is one of the famous attractions not to be missed. We booked a taxi using Uber (that was reasonably cheaper than a local taxi) and went to see this famous status overlooking Lisbon from across the river. This has a lot of history and...More

Driving from Belem to Almada with Lisbon Riders opened up our eyes to another beautiful interesting part of Lisbon. Cristo de Rei is situated on another high point of Lisbon overlooking the 25th bridge and the city of Sintra. IMO, the scenery from here can't...More
