Panoramic viewpoints overlooking the city

On the hilltops of Lisbon, the many miradouros are great places to enjoy a glass of something while drinking in the panorama.

The Miradouro de Graça is one of the most romantic gazebos, with stunning views over São Jorge Castle and the Tagus. Miradouro São Pedro de Alcântara, located in the Príncipe Real street is the only one to offer a 180-degree view of the Alfama hill, São Jorge Castle, and Rossio Square.

The Miradouro das Portas do Sol is popular with party animals and those who love to see the sun rise above the rooftops of the capital. However, if the nocturnal life is not for you, during the day you can admire one of the best views of the Monastery of São Vicente da Fora and the church of Santo Estevão. Santa Catarina, with its kiosk converted into a café, is the city's "postcard" terrace. It is also known for its statue of the "Adamastor", in homage to the creature invented by the great Portuguese poet Luís de Camões, or Camoens, in his epic poem, The Lusiads.
