LISBON VIEWPOINTS

Sit and contemplate. Snap your camera.

Lisbon's superb natural setting, spread across seven hills facing the Tagus River, offers a network of terraces from which to contemplate the beauty of the city. Called "miradouros" or viewpoints, they're usually located at the highest points of each hill, and all have spaces to sit and rest. Some even have cafes serving snacks and light refreshments.

Popular with locals and tourists, day and night, everyone has their favorite and you'll also find your own. You'll discover many others by chance as you wander around the narrow streets and staircases that often frame staggering vistas. You won't be able to resist a stop to admire the city, because after all, taking time to relax and contemplate is one of Lisbon's pleasures and what makes it such a seductive and romantic city.
Below is a list of the most popular miradouros, along with the monuments that offer panoramic views.
