#4 - CONTEMPLATE A FABULOUS VIEW

Top 10 Lisbon Experiences



Miradouro, Lisbon


Walking around a city built on steep hills may not sound like fun, but doing so in Lisbon is rewarding. The hilltop miradouros offer breathtaking romantic views (don't miss Bairro Alto's Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcantara and Alfama's Portas do Sol), while some of the main monuments overlook most of the city.

The most complete views are from Saint George's Castle, the river and Alfama can be seen from the rooftop terrace of São Vicente de Fora Monastery, the top of the Discoveries Monument offers postcard-perfect views of the Belem district, and the entire city and 25 de Abril Bridge stand below the Monument to Christ across the river.
