Miradouro de Santa Luzia

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

If you are looking for a romantic spot to take your sweetheart that will make their eyes sparkle with wonder – this scenic terrace is it. Lisbon is known for these miradouros or lookout points, which offer a pleasant place to rest your feet and gaze out at the steep, hilled cityscape.

Next to a small church of the same name, it offers a gorgeous panoramic view of Alfama – the oldest district in the city. From here you can gaze upon the rooftops of the Sao Miguel Church, the Santo Estevao Church and the National Pantheon.

Stroll through the shady and cool bougainvillea gardens and admire the intricate geometric tiles on the walls and the bust of Lisbon historian Julio de Castilho. Also, take a look at the beautifully painted historic tile panels on the easterly side of the church of Santa Luzia – depicting the crusaders as they besieged the Castelo de Sao Jorge during the reconquest of Lisbon in 1147.
