Views of Lisbon, Lisbon
Miradouro Santa Luzia, view of Alfama
Along the route of “eléctrico 28” there is a good view of the Alfama quarter. You see the red roofs fitting into eachother and in the background the river Tejo to the east. At the miradouro there is a lovely open air café where you can get a good espresso (called “uma bica”). This picture was not taken there!
go up to the castle and enjoy a good view of town.
Fondest memory: Stroling through all the winding alleys and walks enjoying lovely seafood. Tramrides are a fun way of exploring town, never knew they could climb such steep hills. Alternatively try one of the elevators to get from downtown to uptown wherelse can you do that?
It's not easy to find a place too choose, but definately somewhere near the Tagus River. Maybe a restaurant or bar, or the ancient place of EXpo 98 now Parque das Naçoes. See the river, the water, the gardens and the light bathing this space. And there just look a few moments to the silence of the waters, to the birds singing, and to the people walking...
Fondest memory: What is better in Lisbon is the morning light, the morning light hiting the facades tiles, making the water shinny, and the streets cheerful.
There are couple of good view points (Miradouros) in Lisbon.
One of them is Miradouro Santa Lucia, from which the roofs of Alfama and the white top of the impressive Mosteiro de San Vicente can be seen...
...This and the above photos have been taken at Amoreiras area (just next to our hotel);
however the best place to get the whole picture of it is at Bairro da Serafina. I only saw from the car window!
Notice also the bright blue azulejos.
Favorite thing: These vantage points are mostly gardens that are usually located at the highest points of the city. From these you can enjoy beautiful views over the city.
Favorite thing: If you go to Almada Youth Hostel (Pousada da Juventude de Almada) you'll get this view of Lisbon from the bar. So, why not staying in the Youth Hostel instead of the hotel?
Narrow streets,ruins and old houses disposed in stairs to the sky…
Fondest memory: I`ll miss the long walkings late in the night.Such a peaceful atmosphere so,we hate to go to bed.
Favorite thing: In the evening,after the sun goes down over hills, there are strees sinking into a warm light.Old lamps gild the whole town.
It has 13 Km, including 8 km above the water.
Built to resist to the earthquakes.
Fondest memory: Price : 2 euros to enter the city. Froo to leave it.
Favorite thing: the biggest bulfigting arena in Portugal. I hate bullfighting and i thought pretty much if i would show this building in VT...here it is.
Favorite thing: ...From the hills of Castelo there´s also a good view to this Igreja de Santa Graca, once the greatest church in Lisboa. From the church itself there´s a great view towards the city.
...MORE VIEW POINTS!
Another splendid view is from Bairro Alto over the city and the Castelo...
Fondest memory: Lisboa(Lisbon) is a coast line city. You can climb up a mountain and see the city and the Atlantic Ocean.
This picture is made from top of the Elevator de Santa Justa.
You can see the Tejo River and the roofs of Lisbon Houses.
