Miradouro de Santa Luzia (Santa Luzia Viewpoint)
View of Alfama, scent of bougainvillea and decadent aura lent by those typical blue tiles ...
This viewpoint has certainly provided many of Lisbon's most touristic advertising images. Its blue tiled decoration, quintessential Portuguese, and the scent of bougainvillea flowers off its pergola makes it a delightfully decadent site. Lying in the immediate vicinity of the cathedral, this area offers good views of the Alfama district, one of the most popular and characteristics of Lisbon. That white horizon topped with red-orange roofs punctuated by a majestic dome here and there invites the traveller to wander and discover a city with surprises at every turn. Although the nearly constant tourist hustle dampens some of its authenticity, contemplating the bustling city against a blue ocean backdrop conveys a feeling of serenity that every traveller should experience - especially because music is always on the air to turn your time at this secluded, magical shelter into a memorable experience.
