Belveders

São Pedro de Alcântara  

São Pedro de Alcântara

All of Lisbon's viewpoints are romantic, but none more than this one, looking over all of downtown towards the castle and the river. It is a landscaped terrace with busts of historical figures, a fountain, and a kiosk café from where you can sit and admire the beauty of the city. Going up and down the hill next to the terrace is the Gloria funicular and behind it is the Port Wine Institute where you can sample all kinds of Portugal's famous drink.

Portas do Sol

The postcard-perfect views from this terrace above the Alfama district are truly magnificent. It's a must-photograph spot for tourists, who also usually end up sitting for a drink at the kiosk café or at Café Portas do Sol on the terrace below. At the center is a statue of Saint Vincent (Lisbon's patron saint), seen holding the symbols of the city - a boat with two ravens.

Belvedere of Graça  

Belvedere of Graça

This romantic terrace overlooking the city is a popular hangout for young groups thanks to its kiosk café and fantastic views that go from the castle down to the river. Although it's known as Miradouro da Graça, the official name is Miradouro Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, a poet who died in 2004 and who spent many of her days admiring Lisbon from this spot. One of her poems is seen on a wall facing her bust which stands looking out to the city. Standing behind it is an 18th century church, Igreja da Graça.

Nossa Senhora do Monte

This is one of the least visited but perhaps the most breath-taking viewpoint in Lisbon. Together with that of the castle, this is the most complete view of the city, looking directly to the castle, the old town, and the modern districts away from the center. A small 18th century chapel and an image of the Virgin overlooks it all, and there are several seats usually taken over by young couples. A tiled illustration of the view points out the monuments below.

Santa Justa Elevator  

Santa Justa Elevator

If this neo-gothic monument reminds you of Paris' Eiffel Tower, you're not just seeing things. It was built by a disciple of Gustave Eiffel in 1902 (just a few years after the Eiffel Tower), with the purpose of taking people between downtown and the Bairro Alto and Chiado districts. It is 45 meters high (147ft), and has a spiral staircase leading to a terrace and café offering 360-degree bird's-eye views of the city. Today it's mostly used by tourists, a ride that only lasts a few seconds but that's a fascinating journey back to the early 20th century.
