Lisbon is known for it's views and it's light, although it has several "miradouros" this is one of my favorites we can see the old city, the river and the modern side of Lisboa. And the best.... it's free.

The viewpoint itself is gorgeous, well worth a visit when the market is on to pick up some traditional food/gifts. Only issue is the cafe is pricier than other parts of the city.

We visited before have dinner at The Insolito, which is across the street. We enjoyed the various vendors and having a drink where we would enjoy the beautiful view of Lisbon.

Just passed by this viewpoint but decided to stay because of the good atmosphere! People were sitting at the fountain, the shadow and there's music. Just loved it! Make sure you go here.

Stayed in the Barrio Alto and this was a lovely place to hang out and see the surrounding city. It was close to our loft. We went back several times and it's pretty lively. They had a festival going on there the one evening which we enjoyed. I think it's a romantic spot to see especially at night. If you... More

This viewpoint is easy to reach (take Gloria elevador from Restauradores) and gives you great views over the city and the river. It is especially nice in the evening when the sun sets and everything is seen in that beautiful orange color. You can stroll down rue Sao Pedro de Alcantara and stop at Sao Rogue church (peek inside to... More

Late afternoon, after a day of walking Lisbon, we ended up at this place to have glass of wine. There was a street market, people were playing music and there was a great view over Baixa, Alfama, Castelo,... Lovely place.

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.
