Miradouro das Portas do Sol

Standing over Medieval Lisbon



Miradouro das Portas do Sol


Just a few steps 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 Monastery to the waterfront.

There is also a statue of St. Vincent (the city's patron saint) holding a boat with two ravens, the symbols of Lisbon.
