MIRADOURO DE SANTA LUZIA
Views of the river and Alfama
This romantic terrace by the church of Santa Luzia introduces visitors to
Alfama with a sweeping view over its houses, churches, and the Tagus River.
On an outside wall of the church are two tile panels, one of Comercio Square before the earthquake, and another showing Christians attacking St. George's Castle in 1147.
The cafe on the terrace is a good place for a drink before climbing to the castle nearby.
