Miradouro of Santa Catarina (Santa Catarina Viewpoint)
A must-see viewpoint for its stunning sunsets and hipster-style atmosphere.
Views from the Portuguese "Golden Gate".
Sunsets lovers cannot miss this viewpoint overlooking the 25th of April Bridge, Lisbon's Golden Gate. From this point, the city strongly reminds of San Francisco, not least because most city hipsters gather here to watch nightfall. Don't be surprised to run into buskers or couples in love seeking solitude. Mind you, the visitor will soon discover to be in Lisbon for its domestic beer: the Sagres - available in large bottles or in the chilled jars served in park kiosks. All this under the watchful gaze of Adamastor, the Titan described by Luis Camoes in his legendary novels, and whose statue oversees the gardens. That meagre grass patch usually receives droves of youngsters who will move uptown afterwards. If you are seeking something slightly more cosy and convenient, sit on the terrace of Noobai Café (Rua de Santa Catarina, s / n), a classic venue to taste some Portuguese specialties while feeling the damp Atlantic breeze in your face.
