I expected this to be the most scenic view in the whole of Lisbon and it might have been, had I not previously seen the view from the top of the Santa Justa elevator. All in all, very nice but certainly not he best one out there.

A must see during your visit to Lisbon, the views are pretty spectacular and you get a very good idea of the layout of Lisbon. There are also street music and some local artists. Or course, you can also fill up your water bottles!

This is a big "miradouro". Its placed near by what I would call the most interesting streets in Lisbon. The place is big, we had no problem staying here for several hours. By the way; the (white) Sangria at the bar there is fantastic.

The view of the city you get from here is great. There is a little park with cosy little cafe as well. This was my second favorite miradouro after Senhora do Monte. A great place to start your Lisbon city trip!

One of the non expensive and beautiful place to sit and relax. Spend an evening enjoying the breeze, Fado songs by a man and fabulous view of Lisbon. Take the Tram 28 and get down here. For people who like photography can enjoy the views and can spend whole evening here. I visited this place mainly based on listing on... More

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
