Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcantara is a garden with a panoramic view across the city to St. George's Castle and central Lisbon. A map made of tiles marks all the distinctive buildings, and the lower geometric garden contains busts of heroes and gods from Greco-Roman mythology, such as Minerva and Ulysses.
Next to the garden is the Gloria Elevator, a funicular that has been taking passengers up and down the hill between the center of the city (Restauradores Square) and Bairro Alto since 1885.
Across the street is the "Solar do Vinho do Porto" (Port Wine Institute), an 18th-century building where you can sample more than 300 different Ports, including some of the rarer vintages that date as far as 1937. You can order by the glass or bottle, and can drink at the bar or in comfortable armchairs in the sitting room.
