Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara

Lisbon has quite a few romantic miradouros - belvederes or lookout points with a public terrace or garden - that offer wide views over the city. One of the largest is the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara, a garden miradouro located in the Bairro Alto. A funicular - the Elevador da Glória - connects the garden with the lower situated Restauradores Square.
From the miradouro you have excellent views over the area, including the Baixa district, the area around the Avenida da Liberdade and the Tagus river.
You can see plenty of landmarks from here including the São Jorge Castle, the Graça church, the Sé cathedral and the spires of the São Vicente de Fora church. An azulejo panel near the balustrade illustrates all the points of interest that are visible from the miradouro.
