Lisbon: 33 viewpoints that you will like in the portuguese capital!

Have you ever been to Lisbon, the beautiful and bustling Portuguese capital? If so, you will understand very well what “I am talking about,” as you would say there. Situated on the slopes along the Tagus River, the town is full of ups and downs, several hills and of course many hillsides!

And it is precisely on the highest points of these hills that you can enjoy the most beautiful views of the city. They are called “Miradouros” that, in Portuguese means elevated place where you have a panoramic view.

The lookouts or viewpoints are perfect places to enjoy the sunrise or sunset in the city of Lisbon.

According to Lisbon City Hall, there are 16 (sixteen) lookouts scattered throughout the city. The website LisbonLux lists several other places where you can admire the beauty of the city. Considered the highest, the São Jorge Castle viewpoint offers a privileged view of the old houses of the historic center of Lisbon, the Tagus river and the famous and bohemian Bairro Alto.

But if you allow yourself to walk the streets of Lisbon carefree, you will certainly discover several other places, each with a particular and stunning view.
