Famous Viewpoints

Miradouro de Santa Catarina

Known to the locals as “Adamastor”, this viewpoint offers a full 180 degree panorama of the Tejo river. It gets busy around sunset as groups of young people gather with one litre bottles of beer (called litrosas) and cups to share it around.

Address: Rua de Santa Catarina

Miradouro da Graça

Catch tram 28 to the neighbourhood of Graça to enjoy this spectacular viewpoint, offering almost the same views as the castle but for free. You could bring some wine and hang out near the church or just take a seat at the cafe.

Address: Calçada da Graça

Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara

This viewpoint, in the Bairro Alto, overlooks the Baixa district of Lisbon with a view towards the castle. In the evenings you’ll often see young people having a few pre-drinks here before going out.

Address: Rua de São Pedro de Alcântara

Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte

This one is practically the Mount Everest of Lisbon, but if you’re up for an adventure it’s worth it. The highest view-point in the city also offers its best views.

Address: Largo do Monte. Rua da Senhora do Monte 74

Miradouro do Cristo Rei

To get to this far-flung viewpoint you have to get a ferry from Cais do Sodré to Cacilhas, and then a bus up to the Christ Statue. There is an admission fee to get to the top.
It’s a unique look at the city from an angle most tourists don’t see.

Address: Alto do Pragal, av. Cristo Rei
