Carefully located, spread across seven hills of the city overlooking the Tejo River, the sights, which coincide with the most important monuments, offers a network of terraces and balconies from which you can admire the beauty of the city. Some have cafes serving snacks and light meals.
During the day attract older people, while at night they are most popular among young people.
Here we leave you some of the most visited sights of Lisbon:
Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara
The miradouro of San Pedro de Alcantara is undoubtedly the most visited, by having a unique and privileged location, enabling those who admire their views, a trip on the most beautiful spots in Lisbon.
During the evening there is a large concentration of young people in this viewpoint, since it is located in the Bairro Alto district.
Miradouro das portas do sol
From the sight of Portas do Sol, we can see the Church of Sao Vicente de Fora and throughout the Alfama district that stretches for many narrow winding streets until the Tejo river. This place is like a balcony that is much appreciated by all residents of the city.
Miradouro de Santa Luzia
This sight has got an amazing view above the tejo river and Alfama. You should take a look.
This sight is very close to the Portas do sol sight, so the main interestering points are almost the same.
Elevador de Santa Justa
The Santa Justa Elevator is a work of art designed by an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel, who came to apply various techniques learned in France, and connects the Baixa to the Bairro Alto.
Opened in 1902, when it was steam powered, and in 1907 began working electricity. Made entirely of cast iron, the elevator inside the tower rises 45 meters and takes 45 people in each cabin (there are two).
The design level is superb and is definitely one “must go” attraction in Lisbon.
The coffee at the top has a stunning views of the centre of Lisbon, the Castelo de Sao Jorge or even the river Tagus.
Miradouro de Santa Catarina
Santa Catarina has a stunning view over the Tejo River and the south margin of Lisbon. Also known as Adamastor because of the statue in the place, rarely is called by the real name.
Beyond the fabulous view, has also some interesting sights, such as the kiosk, where you can buy from food to drink, or the bars in the neighborhood, which give another life to the place during the night.
Parque Eduardo VII
The Parque Eduardo VII is located in the north of Avenida da Liberdade, near Marques de Pombal. It has excellent views over the city, and is often the venue for exhibitions, concerts and the Annual Book Fair.
