Miradouro of San Pedro de Alcantara (San Pedro de Alcantara Viewpoint)
This vantage point offers top views of majestic and monumental Lisbon!
Relax atop the city
Lisbon is a city to be admired from above and this balcony over the city is an outstanding spot to do so. Adorned with Frenchified gardens of almost Parisian elegance, this viewpoint truly portraits Lisbon's magnificence: the elegant Baixa (downtown), St. George Caste with Alfama at its feet and the blue see as backdrop. Those with good eyesight (or powerful cameras lenses) can try and identify the main monuments of the city, because most are indeed on display from here. The Church of Graça stands especially splendorous on the opposite hill, as does the fortified tower of the cathedral. The atmosphere, not as hectic as in other viewpoints, proves ideal for a picnic among white sculptures or to relax from so many uphill battles under its shady trees. Best option to get there is Elevador de Glória lift.
