“A big disappointment - off the beaten track for a reason!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Do not waste your time walking up or taking the furnicular to this park. I dragged my poor husband all the way up here in the midday heat and yet again he proved his first instinct was right, don't do it! What a waste of time and effort. I wouldn't even call this a park, no flowers, a dirty filthy fountain full of green algae. What wonderful rare views, I was expected better, you can get better views for little or no effect simply by going to the Sky Tivoli Bar in the day and it's a lift to the 8th floor! We wished we hadn't bothered.

“Hidden treasury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Hidden treasury garden for families, couples and friends. Great view, super nice outside coffee and a playground. And has two entrances from two most flamboyant city places.

“Take the funicular and enjoy the view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

The park has good views over the city and river. Climb down the steps to the cafe, and enjoy a drink or snack while enjoying the views.

“Viewpoint in the heart of Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Close to Restauradores there's a tram (elevador do lavra) that takes you up the hill and stop really close to this beautiful viewpoint. Make sure you don't miss a big iron gate with a fountain and a small garden inside. Up there the view is amazing and if you start walking down the hill you'll find an esplanade serving drinks and great sandwiches. A great spot for relax!

“Quiet and rare view of Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

This is one of the best Lisbon balcony's. Great to watch the city, particularly at the sunset. Accessible by the Lavra elevator.
