  • A great view point. Very nice park to sit a. D relax while enjoying the view. Use the special lift to go there. The stares are quite enough.
  • Nowadays there is some construction works, so it is not accessible. However, the view is one of the best. If you are coming from the metro station you will find those graffiti on your way up..nice
  • What a wonderful place to see the Sunset. There is a musician who plays in the evenings. Very romantic.
  • Nice viewpoint. You can see a big part of the city. Also good view of the saint George castle.
  • Beautiful view over Lisbon. Excellent relaxing Lisbon spot next to Elevador da Gloria, with coffee shop.

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.
