Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara

Perfectly located next to one of the most popular funiculars in the city is Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara.  Right beside the viewpoint is the Elevador da Glória – popular Lisbon Tram ride.  It has lovely views and is a picturesque garden.

Sometimes in the summer months and into autumn you’ll find some pop up stands selling sweet treats and refreshments, like The Sangria Hut.

Miradouro das Portas do Sol Observation Deck 

Located near to the bar Portas do Sol, the Miradouro Das Portas do Sol is a very popular viewpoint.  It offers beautiful views over the Tagus River and you can watch the cruise ships come in.  It’s also very close to the tram 28 stop and you can easily walk to another nearby Miradouro, Santa Luzia.

Miradouro Santa Luzia 

Located a short walk away from Miradouro das Portas do Sol Observation Deck is Miradouro Santa Luzia.

With a pretty pergola walkway and a view over the Tagus River, Miradouro Santa Luzia is a great spot to watch the sunset.  It’s very peaceful there despite being very popular.

Miradouro do Torel

Miradouro Torel is almost hidden away from the bustle of the main centre in Lisbon.  It’s also near one of the oldest funiculars –  Ascensor do Lavra – which dates back to the 1880’s

Using the funicular is the easiest way to get to Miradouro do Torel and to Jardim do Torrel, the park.

Miradouro do Castelo de São Jorge 

If a visit to Castelo de São Jorge is already on your list, then use the time to take a look over the city from its Miradouro viewpoint.  You can get 360 degree views all over the city as well from its turrets.  

The easiest way to get to Castelo de São Jorge is to take the Elevador Castelo lift which is minutes away from Baixa metro stop.  It takes you as level up and then you take another smaller lift which is across the road a few streets up.  Then it’s a short walk from there.
