Lisbon View Points - Miradouros in Lisbon

Luminous Lisbon on its seven hills, overlooking River Tagus, invites you to enjoy its breathtaking viewpoints and to take a break and simply contemplate. 

 

Lisbon's amazing viewpoints are what makes it a romantic city (and some say, one of the most beautiful in the world), sweeter and slower. 

There are several terraces, where tourists and locals mingle to rest and chill. They are essential places in the life of Lisbon. Relaxing while admiring the city is an unforgettable experience. Many viewpoints have kiosks for refreshments, others are simply the terraces of some of the city's main monuments.
