Lovely flowers around a nice terrace (crowded though)
Sep 2021
Nice area to stop en route to the Sao Jorges Castle and take in the view. It's convenient to the #28 Tram/Trolley if you want to ride that there. We walked up from the Lisbon Cathedral (Se'). There were quite a few people up there ... busy area. We were hoping to eat at a restaurant there but it was not open, which surprised us.

Nice area to view an average view however

The area is nice with a water feature (which was empty) nice mural of the city on the wall. The views are disappointing however.

Nice viewpoint over the city, but not exceptional, with a pretty little garden. Café of the same name has similar views if in need of a drink.

The viewpoint itself is far prettier than the view.
Jul 2021
This review is for the terrace not for the restaurant at the viewpoint!

Dripping in lilac-coloured bougainvillea, with azulejo artwork adding a decorative touch, this viewpoint is lovely place to just sit and relax on one of the many benches available.

Lovely viewpoint
Feb 2021 • Solo
There are many viewpoints like this dotted all over Lisbon, makes sense since it's such a hilly city! This one is a short walk from the cathedral and rewards you with sweeping views of rooftops and the river

Panoramic View & Traditional Azulejos Tiling
Mar 2020
We quickly learnt that in Lisbon anything with the word ‘miradouro’ in the name was worth going to. It roughly translates as ‘viewpoint’.
This large, open terrace is next to the more famous Miradouro das Portas do Sol. The view from Santa Luzia is not as expansive but you get a different angle. What makes it really special (and I think more beautiful) are the panels of traditional blue and white azujelos tiles on the walls of both the church and terrace.
If you go behind the church, you’ll find lookout point and two large tiled panels. One shows Lisbon’s main square Praça do Comércio, before the 1755 earthquake. The other, shows the historic scene in 1147 when the Christian crusaders finally captured St Jorge Castle (which stands above you).
This is the moment where, after a long 4 month siege, one of the knights, Martim Moniz, spotted an open side gate. IHe threw his body into the open gateway, wedging the door open, allowing the crusaders to storm the castle. t was a game-changer and the Moors were defeated.
Before you leave, don’t-miss the hidden tunnel. It’s tucked away down the stairs to the left of the church. A colourful, fun mural covers the walls and tells the history of Lisbon in cartoon panels).
GETTING THERE:
It’s very easy to get here and I’d highly recommend catching the famous #28 tram and getting off at the Miradouro das Portas do Sol.

Outstanding Sweeping Views
Feb 2020
This Miradouro or viewpoint is on the Tram 28 line. It is an outstanding viewpoint into Alfama. From here you will see the bright red-roofed, tile paneled white houses and their courtyards. The church towers and domes gleam in a healthy spattering of green. Nearby is the Church of of Santa Luzia, Castello de Sao Jorge, the Romanesque cathedral and various other sites too numerous to mention. I was glad to be here, but if you venture to those sites you need to plan and get some directions as there is a labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways on your journey. All a little confusing

From this location you get great views of the city and the river. I was walking somewhere else on a walking tour and stopped here for a few minutes. It was a very nice stop and a good place to rest.

One of the most beautiful viewpoints in Lisbon
Sep 2019
An atmospheric and simply beautiful place. There is not only a beautiful view from here, but also the place itself. It is a small garden with a pond, pergolas and benches. Lots of elements covered with azulejos tiles. Beautiful flowers and the view. A lot of people in the evening hours, but still worth a visit. Very close to a tram stop, incl. the most famous line 28. I also recommend a walk down the narrow streets of the Alfama district behind the church.
