The perfect evening spot to have a snack, sit outside and take in the beautiful views. The restaurant is a walk up to the window type, and while they were sold out of some items at 8 pm there was still plenty to choose from, the prices were reasonable. The next level up is like a park, lots of places to sit, and see the beautiful water views.

The only caution is the Tuk Tuk drivers, we were in the very same spot Wednesday afternoon and took a Tuk Tuk to our Airbnb for €10, on Saturday night they quoted €20 for the same two people (grandmother and child). Needless to say we declined (the Uber was €3,25) as the Tuk Tuk drivers kept lowering their prices for us to no avail. Expect to pay around 3 times the price of Uber for the Tuk Tuk (which has been typical all week) but 6 times is ridiculous.

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.

Postcard panoramic views of Lisbon can be experienced here. Nice place to sit and enjoy the views of red roofs of Alfama and the sea. This big balcony is surrounded by some fantastic Azulejos (traditional blue tiles of Portugal). About 12 min walk from Praça do Comércio and also en route the iconic yellow Tram 28. Well maintained garden behind the balcony. Take care of your belongings as it may get crowded here during peak hours like sunset and big tour groups coming here.

Nice gardens, and a wonderful mural azuelo combined with an outstanding view of Lisbon & the Tagus river makes this overlook a must see stop.

Take an Uber up to the Castle & walk down to this as it’s all downhill from there.

Come early to take pictures as it gets very crowded with tourists trying to take pictures in front of the porticos & azuelo.

The Miradouro das Portas do Sol is next door so make sure you see that overlook also. Both offer slightly different views of Lisbon.

This is one of the most famous viewpoints over Lisbon. My advice would be to stop here on your way down the hill from the Castle, as you can up there in the elevator and it's far more pleasant to view attractions when walking downhill. There is a view right over Lisbon Bay and part of the city. Also there is a small garden, with an interesting wall mural and above there is a café/restaurant.

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.

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

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.

On your way to the "Castelo de São Jorge" and just at the side of the "Igreja de Santa Luzia e São Brás", you will find the "Miradouro de Santa Luzia". A romantic terrace offering awesome views of Lisbon's "Alfama" quarter and the iconic Tagus River. Modern tile panels and a welcoming café complete the scene. Enjoy!

We were not impressed with the view after seeing the incredible view from the castle, but the tiles on the terrace and on the church are so beautiful!
