MIRADOURO DAS PORTAS DO SOL
Standing over Medieval Lisbon
Just a few steps away from
Miradouro de Santa Luzia, a balcony opens onto
the river offering truly spectacular views over Alfama.
Faced by soft-toned buildings and the Decorative Arts Museum, this is a popular stop for photographers, with its stunning view from São Vicente de Fora Church to the river.
There is also a statue of St. Vincent (the city's patron saint) holding a boat with two ravens, the symbols of Lisbon.
Enjoy a marvellous panoramic shot of this area here.
