  • It is worth getting there because the views of Lisbon are very nice. We have opposite the castle of São Jorge; in the background the Tagus; down the Baixa.

  • Undoubtedly the show is beautiful! I have to say that even the lisutani are good at advertise at best what they have ... we must learn! However a leap here can only be done if one we happen!

  • Very nice view on the city, especially at night. Small merchants on the site, good atmosphere for Valentine.

  • Some of the best views in Lisbon. Although the sun sets in the west and you are facing east over here you will be able to see some of the last rays of light hitting the Castelo Sao Jorge and the old part of Lisbon from this lookout point. Afterwards you are close to several cheap bars and restaurants just across the street in Bairro Alto.
  • One of the best views from the west side of downtown. Recent nice little shops were set up there.
  • Interesting with few small vendors offering some artisans products. Nice view of the castelo from there. Possibility to get coffee or drinks as well.
  • Excelente vista e perspectiva sobre Lisboa
  • Often hosts markets with interesting typical portuguese products, and other themes from time to time. The view is unmissable. There is a kiosk to stop for coffee, though it is a little overpriced for Portuguese standards. A good stop on your way to or from downton/bairro alto/principe real.
