    Great views of Lisbon.
    We stumbled across this place after visiting the Church nearby and walking back to Rossio. I am so glad that we did. The views of Lisbon are incredible. You get a great view of the Castle. It's also a very well-kept and clean area. Popular with people just relaxing, reading a book etc.

    Best lookout in Lisbon!
    While vacationing in Lisbon and Porto, we tried to see as many places we can. Walking down from Jardim Botanico de Lisbon and getting cocktails at Gin Lovers bar, we stopped by Miradouro de Sao de Alcantara to enjoy the panoramic views of the city. The lookout terrace has a beautiful terrace and tiled information about the surroundings. A must see !

    Free best view of the city! Worth the hike or take the tram
    This place is worth the hike up the hill or you can take a tram up. It offers amazing view of the sea, the castle and the colourful buildings and terracotta roof tops. It has a little bar at the top which you can grab drinks and ice cream. There are also benches you can sit on and admire the view. There were live performers and it made an amazing afternoon of just allowing you to soak in the beauty of the city in a really relaxing atmosphere.

    A must-see in Bairro Alto
    Day or night, if you're in Bairro Alto you must see this miradouro (lookout point). It's the second-best in Lisbon and free. It's also part of the fun Bairro Alto party and dining district and reachable by the Gloria Funicular, a tram and by foot. On weekends, a musician plays next to the kiosk where they serve drinks (or bring your own). And yes, the views of Lisbon are amazing.

    Good viewpoint with easy access and large viewing area
    This viewpoint might not be the best in Lisbon. That honor belongs to Miradouro da Senhora do Monte. But this one is easier to reach as it is located right next to the end of the Ascensor da Gloria line. From here there is a good view of Castelo de Sao Jorge. The viewing platform is quite long, and there are an upper and a lower level. So even though the size of the crowd is not small, it is never too crowded.

    Miradouro with sweeping views of eastern Lisbon
    This is a charming viewpoint at Bairro Alto with sweeping views of eastern Lisbon including famous attractions such as Castelo de Sao Jorge. There are two levels and plenty of bench seating. You will also find food and drink stalls as well as tables if you want to have a refreshment or light bite to eat while spending time at Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara. In addition to the rewarding views, there are several other points of interest at Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara including the Eduardo Coelho bust monument, the Convento de Sao Pedro de Alcantara as well as the Elevador da Gloria, funicular that climbs the hill from Baixa down below. Well worth making the time and effort to include Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara in your sightseeing endeavours in Lisbon.

    Attractive lookout with terraces and cafes.
    This is an attractive lookout with expansive views over parts of the city, and there are fountains, benches and a cafe. The lookout can be accessed from the lower town area by the elevador Gloria. Also nearby is the fascinating Church of Sao Roque.

    Very nice view of the streets below hillside but the area here and nearby is the biggest selling point.
    Wonderful area to visit in Lisbon. Lovely vibe. So much atmosphere - day and night. Fabulous fountain looks great at night. A small park below the main viewing area is a great place to sit and enjoy the view as well as people watching. The big draw is the views of the streets below and the hillside points of interest and the coastline. Not overly spectacular but pretty good views of the city below and around. A lot of cranes around when I was here to spoil some of the view but still very worthwhile. Weather on a nice day can add to it. But the whole of this area is the selling point. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops and nearby attractions make it a place to go and then explore from.

    Beautiful view of the City
    One of the best Miradouros (Viewpoints) in Lisbon. It has a fountain, few restaurants, but the most important is the panoramic views of the city. From here you can see the Miradouro Senhora do Monte with its iconic tree, the Castle of Saint George and few areas of the city of Lisbon.

No regrets we have chosen this one over many other viewpoints on a sunny February day to enjoy the views. Elevador de Gloria took us straight from Avenida de Liberdade (you can use your 24 hour ticket on it) to it. Spacious green area on top with lots of benches, cafe and a fountain to relax by.

Just across from my Hostel, I was surprised to find this place. Stunning views of Lisbon interspersed with neighbourhood parks, the Castle and Cathedral. Even in the rain it had a mesmeric feel about it. I was told that many people gather here to relax, play chess, read or just chat and chill. The fact that it so clean doesn't hurt. An unexpected bonus...

Rode up here on the funicular and then the views are just superb. Great view of the castle and its such a nice area up here too. The funicular ride and then this area are complete 'Must Visits' for Lisbon.

One of the best miradouro's in Lisbon. Later in the year it's not the best for sunsets as it sets behind you, but even then it's always busy with a really chill atmosphere.

This lookout point is absolutely gorgeous, and right at the top of the funicular stop, which makes it super convenient. There’s a lot of seating, street artists and impressive panoramic views of the city.
