MIRADOURO DAS PORTAS DO SOL

Standing over Medieval Lisbon

Miradouro 
das Portas do Sol 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.
