Miradouro de Santa Catarina

Viewpoint Always Open (possibly closed due Covid-19 restrictions) Check location

Back in the 16th-18th century, this viewpoint (also known as the Adamastor Viewpoint) was the perfect place to watch the ships on the water. There is even a popular proverb about “seeing ships from the top of Santa Catarina.”

Take a trip up to this scenic lookout and relax on one of the marble benches surrounded by a tranquil garden. Below you will be able to see the Tejo River, the Christ the King statue, the buildings of downtown Lisbon and the 25 de Abril Bridge.

You’ll often hear the music of street performers filling the air, adding a joyful atmosphere to this lovely park and viewpoint.

The lookout also has a lovely terrace where you can sit with a coffee while watching the boats on the Tejo River and the sunset turning the sky shades of lavender and rose.
