4.3
#9 of 34 in Historic Sites in Lisbon
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Perched atop a hill overlooking the city, Miradouro de Santa Luzia gives you a view over much of Lisbon's medieval quarter, the Tagus River, and the nearby ocean. Climb to the terrace viewpoint and its basilica, and you'll find that you have a new perspective on the red rooftops of the Alfama neighborhood, as well as the city's spires that dot the landscape. Stop by the on-site church, which boasts a series of scenes and artwork constructed from blue tiles. Afterward, you can kick back with a drink at the terrace's cafe. Put Miradouro de Santa Luzia into our Lisbon itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • While we were walking around, we stopped here. It is a great viewpoint of the city. You can take some beautiful photos. However, there can be a big crowd mid-day and afternoon. Worth the stop though  more »
  • When coming down from Saint George Castle, this is a nice place to stop, take a deep breath and nice coffee. The view of the river and of the rooftops is relaxing, particularly in a sunny day.  more »

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
