Nice views

This is a great spot to view the city from. You can see the castle and cathedral next to the river and the high points and valleys of Lisbon. One of the best views in the city.

I go to Lisbon often and no trip is complete without an afternoon glass of wine at this Miradouro. Lovely, peaceful view with a nice little cafe.

Was staying in Lookout Lisbon! Hostel (1 min walk away) so I am always at this miradouro when I have the time. Was never sick of the beautiful view it offers.

Worth the walk to enjoy the spectacular views from this viewpoint, There are bars and restaurants in the area and the good news it is downhill at the end. Nice picture opportunities over the districts with the contrasting hills.

I loved the Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara!! Great views, huge trees, little outdoor shops and we had a beautiful clear day. Just make sure you wear nonslippery shoes if you are walking down hill.

Excellent spot for seeing the city. You can take the funicular railway from Avenida Da Liberdade for an even more fun visit

There is a street fair for all of August at this spot. I really enjoyed grabbing a beer and just sitting on the bench and checking out the view. Highly recommended at sunset. Food, drinks, and souvenirs were overpriced compared to other spots.

Get there from Praca dos Restauradores by Elevador da Gloria (3.60 Euros) or go uphill along the steep Calcada da Gloria (if you like climbing). Bus 758, too, can take you there from Rata or Praca Luis Camoes metro stations.

Right of top of the Gloria funicular. Use the zapping metro card - much cheaper (use it for everything - trains, trolleys). Beautiful view of the castle. Nice park with a little café with wine and snacks.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
