    Great views from this lookout and an excellent place to take a break from your walks around. Take a lot of photos here.

    The views here are terrific of the city below and of the castle. It is a good place to stop and rest and to take a bunch of photos.

    Views of rooftops here, not the best view in Lisboa, but still very good and worth a stop for photos and to get your bearing. It's a city of hills and views.

    If you plan to visit Parque das Nacoes, come to visit Vasco de Gamma Mall too.

    The mall can be accessed by metro red line, bus or train. We came here on Thursday 3 weeks ago and it was very busy.

    There are over 150 stores and a food court. The supermarket Continente is on the ground level.

    I visited amoreiras 360 deck on a 2 night stay in Lisbon trip! The view is amazing, really easy access and a fair price €$5,00. I would have stayed longer if it had a dry bar with wine! Nonetheless, the sunset was mesmerizing and I would definitely do it again!

    as the TA site says...
    Funicular railway that leads to the São Pedro de Alcântara Miradouro overlook and the chiado district above Lisbon.
    There are many ways to get up here - steps, elevators in buidlings, Santa Justa elevador...but one night we had a dinner near the top of the funicular so we took this as a kick. I think it was about 3.80 E each. You can pay the driver in cash. You can walk right up next to it, but it is pretty steep. It's a very easy to find site, right off the main drag Avenue Liberdade, not far from Rossio train station; it's an ancient trolley covered with graffiti. You know, it was worth it!

    Just reviewing to let people know this is accessible again as earlier reviews suggest it was closed due to covid. It wasn't very busy when I went, and provides a great view of the city and some interesting graffiti. Be mindful it is an empty old tower a good distance from any amenities by foot or cycle so water and snacks are a good idea for anyone not driving.

    The arch is really incredible and the centre piece and entered To the square below. It’s magnificent. Great street to walk up behind it and a real buzz.

    Construction finished. Nice marble feature steps to sit on. Bring your own sundowners, or there are 3 bars to choose from. Mixed crowd.

    We took a taxi to this area as we intended to visit the oceanarium so thought we'd take a look at the tower and the Vasco De Gama bridge.

    It reminded me of a smaller version of the Burj Al Harab in Dubai. A nice place to walk along the river and get a few photos.

    Not worth a visit just for this building, but the view of the bridge and visiting somewhere else in the area makes it worth a few hours out of your day.

    This must be the best view point to take pictures of the bridge. I reached by climbing streets with large inclines. Worth it at the top.

    This viewpoint is better - and much less crowded - than Santa Lucia. Somewhat hidden in a children’s play zone (you have to go around the building) and therefore only accessible during daytime. They even have some tables and benches in the shade. Look for Miradouro do Recolhimento in Google maps - it will lead you to the entrance.

    This place is easy to reach as it's connected with the street below with some stairs, it's a nice viewpoint, overlooking the harbour and the river... there's also a cute little park here, with lots of shadow and benches, perfect place for a little picnic while enjoying the view!

    One of the lesser visited viewpoints in Lisbon (there are just too many I guess) but nevertheless worth the hike up, good views over the rooftops, especially on a sunny day, with a couple of benches to relax
